More info on the trust

The support from the trust has enabled us to achieve great things for our participants. 

Anas described feeling alone and isolated, he was looking for friends. Through regular befriending meetings he is now more outgoing with boosted confidence he now attends swimming and goes to the gym. 

Fathima was referred to us, she had health issues and struggled with mobility. Our volunteer helped to increase her access to services, provided regular socialising opportunities and increased her getting out of the house.

Our Befriending programme offers regular one-to-one support by pairing volunteer befrienders with participants to meet up, usually weekly, for 1-2 hours. Befriending has helped those who have a lack of support and social networks to build relationships and connections in their community and in Nottingham. 

The grant from the Swan Mountain Trust has been used towards volunteer costs, including refreshments for participants, travel costs for taking people to appointments and visits. We are very grateful for the support of the Trust. Help to support our work and be part of the change!
