Snow Angel Services and Projects
Befriending services in Cheshire West
We have recently secured funding from Cheshire West and Chester Council which means that this service will be extended across Cheshire West over the next three years. The project aims to reduce isolation and loneliness and to support older people to continue to live independently in their own homes. We have a network of volunteers who help to achieve these aims and we are recruiting volunteers in mid Cheshire and Chester at the moment. If you would like to know more about this project, become one of our volunteers, or would like to refer an older person into this project please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or phone us on 0300 666 6226
Lunch Clubs in Mid Cheshire
This is our latest project and we are delighted to be working with Greenbank School in Northwich to provide a lunch club for older people in the area. The project is due to start on the 24th April and to find out more contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 0300 666 6226.
At Home with IT project
This project is funded through Cheshire Community Foundation and Vale Royal Clinical Commissioning Group. We have a number of I Pad’s which are available for loan to enable older people to try out the technology at home to keep in touch with families and friends and to access services. Frances who is our Project Worker is available to help to support people in their own homes and community settings to get the most out of IT. We are also looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping out – please contact her at email@example.com
Colshaw Farm Angels
Colshaw Farm is small community in Wilmslow Cheshire and the People’s Health Lottery, Cheshire East Council, and Wilmslow Town Council supported a programme for a Snow Angels project including energy advice to local residents, improvements in the take-up of flu vaccinations, and increasing local volunteering. Over the past twelve months there has been a significant increase in partnership working, volunteer training, and engagement with older people about their health issues.
Neston Angels and Dementia Alliance
Neston Angels started in 2014 and we are working with a local community group – Community Activities Neston – to provide support for older people and to consolidate local partnership working. As part of this programme partners have signed up to work together to make Neston and the surrounding villages a dementia friendly community.
