We are new social enterprise in Leicester, currently staffed entirely by volunteers, hoping to obtain a premises by April 2019; in the interim we wish to raise funds to provide an empowering peer-led community reach out meet up and drop in service in the city. We will offer free tea and coffee, a chance to chat and socialise along with peer-mentor advice and guidance to isolated people who are struggling in the city.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
A growing number of people are suffering from loneliness and isolation; we see a need to rebuild a sense of community and mutual aid via the method of empowering peer-mentor initiatives within these communities. All of our team are currently volunteers and we've all overcome difficult obstacles in our own lives. We have a qualified health trainer among our team along with someone who has helped to run mental health awareness courses in the city. This method of outreach can have a profound impact on health improvements based on using the ideas and experiences of the very people who engage with us.
Steps to get it done:
