Projects

Stronger Together

The Stronger Together project is funded by Reaching Communities and began in April 2019.  It is funded for 4 years.

The main aim is to match local people to local activities to reduce isolation.

Meet Nicola
Nicola’s role is to support local people on a 1:1 basis and match individuals to a group that is right for them. If you would like to get out more and join a new activity, telephone Nicola Sharpe on 01709 719748 and arrange a chat over a cuppa!

  • We want to help people feel less isolated and lonely
  • We want to help local people to get involved in activities in Rawmarsh
  • We signpost people to local activities
  • We want to create local volunteer ambassadors

………….

Weekly Activities

We have created 5 new activities that are based around friendship and fun. These include, Paint Together, Active Together, Eat Together, Hola Together and Walk Together.

Each group meets weekly!

………….

Reducing Isolation

By attending activities weekly we hope this project will reduce isolation for people by building lasting friendships, aiding people to feel less isolated and to connect more to the local community.

We want local people to feel they can influence this project too, therefore we collate ideas and make them happen wherever possible. The Stronger Together project also offers training to improve skill levels for volunteer ambassadors and local group leaders. These have included Safeguarding Adults and Walk Leader training.

People do not need to be referred to us by a health professional they can simply ring Nicola on 01709 719748 and arrange a 1:1.

………….

Exciting Community Events

We have several community events every year to bring local people together. These have included activity demonstrations at the Great Get Together, a Coffee Morning for Macmillan, Christmas Celebration Meal and a Meet the Writer event.

New events are posted under our news section on this website.

………….

Volunteer Ambassadors

If you have a skill or talent that you would like to share please get in touch as we want to work closely with members of the local community to build a sense of belonging and make a difference to people’s lives.

During 2019 we met Mike who had lived in Spain for around 40 years and returned to Rawmarsh. He is now using his extensive  knowledge of other languages to teach others how to speak Spanish.

We also met Raman who is a creative writer. He wrote a script for a film OPA! Lost in Love, which we enjoyed watching with a pie and pea supper.

We also have volunteers who attend weekly and support in groups. Their role is to help to introduce new people to the groups, provide a friendly welcome and encourage friendships. Carole is a Rawmarsh resident that is self employed and had a few hours spare during the week, she has been going out with the Eat Together Group regularly and is a great asset to the group.
