Volunteers at Dewsbury Community Outreach are involved in helping improve the environment, upcycle and recycle material, learn new skills and hobbies and reduce loneliness. This includes everything from meeting over a cuppa while chatting through problems and things that really matter, to more practical ways of helping. We are involved in writing skills, DIY, crafts, cooking, gardening and helping with basic form filling and life skills. People who come bring their interests, experiences and hobbies with them to share with others. We work with other Christians and voluntary groups in the town too including sharing a meal at the Elim Church next door once a week. The building needs warmth and hot water to make it a more welcoming and usable environment and this crowdfunding project is to install a new gas central heating boiler as the old one doesn't work.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Having a warm welcoming space for people to meet will mean better experiences for those attending meetings and a nicer environment to work in. A warm room is essential for craft and writing clubs and just a space which serves as a base to work from and build the community. With the current situation of uncertainty over the covid 19 pandemic with many people being isolated, the work that we do is all the more important supporting vulnerable and lonely people.
