One Step at a Time
I run a Mental Health Community Support Service with my best friend and we like to apply for funding to take a group of elderly service users on a trip. Our service users attend a group at our setting twice a week and we asked them where they would like to go if we could organise a trip.
They said they would love to go to the beach for fish and chips and ice cream! Our service users have all suffered from loneliness, isolation, bereavement, mental health issues, or Dementia. We have brought these vulnerable people together through our service and many have said we are their lifeline, they have no family or friends to support them but by attending our group, many of our service users have now become very good friends and by offering each other peer support, they are helping each other. We would be extremely grateful for any funding if this is possible as we could pay for the bus our service users fish and chips and ice cream. Thank you
