Integrate Awarded £3,000 by the Anchor Foundation

October 26, 2015

 

Integrate has been awarded £3,000 towards the running costs of the womens drop-in by the Anchor Foundation

 

The womens drop-in is a safe social space where woman of all ages can socialise, speak to someone in confidence and take part in social activities like arts and crafts or nail painting. The drop-in also offers assistance in searching for jobs, assistance with form filling (job applications, benefits etc.), social activities (such as games), a safe, regular social environment, a gateway to community, a signpost to other support functions (and if necessary, support in accessing them), a caring, listening ear, access to the food-bank; 'Storehouse' and perhaps most importantly... tea, coffee and cake!

 

A regular visitor to the womens drop-in said:

 

'I enjoy doing the crafts and the best thing we've done is painting Easter eggs and rolling them down the hill. The drop-in means I can come and get help if I need it with filling in forms, housing, job centre things and company. I heard about it through Lifestyle on a Monday night and I think I started coming more when I lost my partner and my mum. It has helped me magnificently.'

 

We're passionate about addressing lonEliness, isolation and disadvanatage in all their forms. This grant will really help to ensure that we are able to continue to deliver the services offered at the womens drop-in into 2016. We can't thank the Anchor Foundation enough!

 

The Anchor Foundation supports Christian charities concerned with social inclusion, particularly through minstries of healing and the arts. You can find out more about them and the amazing projects which they've contributed to clicking on the logo below.
