Situation

With the elderly to provide services that they need but are not provided by statutory provision. A lot of these services have been reduced lately. A good example is assisted shopping trips. Reduced isolation is one of our main outcomes. Youth Work focuses on working with youth who are at risk , before their issues lead to more severe consequences and the remedies are more costly. Our children's work provides an after school provision in a very built up area deprived of "playing space".

Solution

With the elderly we provide a regular shopping facility, regular on site visits and a social meeting point around our weekly lunch club. We also provide bespoke solutions when we can to issues that arise. With youth we work primarily one on one to help them think though various issues. Group dynamics mean we use group activities primarily to make contact. For work with children we provide six after school activities a week primarily making use of the space we have available in our sports hall
