Together We Grow Stronger

People tell us that the service we provide is quite often no less than a lifeline. Just a friendly face, a cup of tea and a safe and relaxed environment can often be the incentive those feeling isolated need to break the cycle of loneliness. Our ethos means that we put no pressure on individuals to use our services. We offer the support and encouragement needed to take a step back into the community when someone is ready to do so. Our focus is always on the individual and their progress and we want the change they make to be self-sustainable and appropriate for them.

We specialise in working with individuals facing multiple barriers to social inclusion such as physical and mental health issues including ptsd, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, financial debt and social isolation. All our projects run from our base at Bowthorpe Community Hub.

Vital in today’s society is the awareness of the needs and contributions of others and the ability to build and maintain effective relationships, both at work and in the family. By putting people first we can achieve a better, safer and more secure future, improve education and employment prospects, enable people of all ages and walks of life to live independently and help create positive and sustainable social change.

Because we believe that reconnecting people with nature, nutrition and creativity strengthens our overall health and wellbeing we offer a wide range services from our Hub such as:

  • Horticultural therapy
  • Healthy eating, diet and nutrition
  • Arts and crafts therapy
  • Budgeting, personal finance and smart shopping

Experience has taught us that you can’t treat an individual or a problem in isolation; you have to look at the wider picture. We promote a culture of teamwork, peer mentoring and coaching. Our approach is geared towards tacking the roots of issues, learning how to identify strengths and develop personal goals enabling people to live independent lives.
