projects and partnerships
After Research and Development work it was decided that the first projects were to be an older peoples weekly lunch club and an after school drop in for young people. Followed by other projects.
Lunch Club. Working in partnership with Age Concern. Funding was sought and received from Help the Aged, a staff member was appointed (3 hours per week) and the lunch club began in June 2007. Since then it has proved to be a popular group, with many attending regularly. The Crossing cafe provide a low cost home cooked meal which is served by a group of volunteers.
Older Peoples Forum. Working in partnership with Bassetlaw Elderly Action Network. We have received some funding and held an advice day in October. The feedback from this day has been promising and we are arranging the first meeting for those interested in serving on a Forum in January.
Baby & Toddlers Group. Working with the Church. A Baby & Toddler Group has been running from the Church for a number of years twice a month. Funding was sought and received to expand this service and a member of staff was appointed and the group started meeting twice a week. The group meet Wednesday and Friday mornings 9.30am - 11am in The Crossing halls.
As well as organising groups and events we are keen to provide facilities at a reasonable cost to community groups and charities (and at a higher cost to businesses as an income stream)
As part of this we have built up good relationships with a number of groups who provide services to the wider community.
