Our current Community Programme work at our Bodmin Road site comprises the six main elements described below. For information about the work at our Pennine site please see the Pennine section of the website.
Community Cafe – Our Cafe is open 4 days a week. In addition to the obvious provision of a community social space in an area with problems of loneliness, exclusion and isolation, our Cafe provides a safe and easy welcome point for people who have deeper needs. A cup of tea is often just the beginning of a journey towards recovery and new-found confidence.
Children & Families Work – Based upon our in-house Softplay Area our Family Support Worker delivers a programme of toddler groups, and parenting support through home visits.
Renovate – Individual Support Programme – Our Renovate Project is about lives, not buildings! Our part time worker provides one-to-one support for some vulnerable individuals or for people in crisis.
Bransholme Carers’ Service – We support carers and their families in sustainable living, enabling people to stay in control of their lives and live at home for longer. This scheme averages over 1000 home respite visits per year as well as providing a much needed social network and meeting place for carers and their families.
Debt Support Scheme – Supporting and signposting people with debt problems.
Employability Development – Providing volunteers with ongoing training, interview support, CV writing and references.
