Roker Life works alongside vulnerable adults and their families; the isolated and lonely; those battling mental health problems; refugees and asylum seekers. The space identified for transformation is large, warm and accessible but has no facilities to support community events. A mini kitchen would create a self-contained room ideal as home for a wide variety of disadvantaged groups from our community.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This will create a welcoming, practical and cost effective facility to re-energise an empty space. Transformed it can be offered to the wider community to sustain activities designed to improve health & well-being and social interaction.
Steps to get it done:
Extensive remedial work on the interior of the room is being separately funded to make it fit for purpose. We have written confirmation from the Church Trust which owns the building that the proposed changes will be viewed favourably.
