Our history and the impact we have made

Our vision was born within the hearts of 3 people over 30 years ago.

The organization focuses on anyone disadvantaged by poverty such as older people, people with mental health and/or physical disabilities, the house bound (shut-ins), asylum seekers and to give respite to Carers.  We seek and continue to work with individuals and groups within communities to improve their general wellbeing, quality of life and social inclusion. 

The Centre

A ‘Communities’ local hub for community activities which encourages individuals to come together, share, learn new skills and develop their capacity to address our community’s prominent social and health concerns.  We provide a healthy 2 course meal to attendees and accessible and affordable activities, social events, and day trips to keep them active, build self-confidence, develop friendships and encourage social interaction. 

This reduces social isolation and loneliness, aiding independence and enabling individuals to live in their homes longer, taking the pressure off the NHS. Early ‘Primary care’ supports a more resilient integrated community that tackles our community’s diverse needs. The Centre has a proud record of developing successful projects devised by beneficiaries with productive outcomes e.g. Day Care Centre which is run independently, Visiting and a Befriending Service – currently has a waiting list, Youth Creation Kids Club – established for over 5 years and our current Re-Stimulating-You project – waiting list and increased membership. We meet our community’s needs, lead positive change and improve beneficiaries’ lives.

Our Volunteers and Community members make the difference

The organisation is governed by a dedicated group of Trustees and other volunteers, age range 18-64. Proud to host several students on Health and Social Care placements each year gaining valuable experience. Reviews and Evaluations are completed quarterly by Beneficiaries, Volunteers, Local businesses, and community members ensuring we are ‘current’ and ‘fit for purpose’ addressing the needs of our Beneficiaries within our Community. Awards and Centre Highlights :
