Support the Ancora project
This grid shows when you can volunteer for this organisation. E.G Monday morning.
KeyRing were successful in an application to The Big Lottery Fund and a programme called ‘Help Through Crisis’. KeyRing, Christians Against Poverty and Oldham Foodbank have set up a new project to provide support to people in hardship, through both short-term and longer-term interventions, known as The Ancora Project.
The focus of the 5 year project is to resolve a crisis brought about through hardship, i.e. that the crisis has been brought about as a result of extreme poverty and therefore the person is unable to access basic needs such as food, shelter, fuel, basic health or social care and to identify the underlying causes of the hardship. We are also working in partnership with Side by Side Counselling services to provide access to counselling support.
We have spent the last few months preparing for the project to go live. We have recruited a small staff team, created systems/processes within the service, we have started to make contact with agencies who may wish to refer to the project and we have been looking at how we reach people who wouldn’t necessarily present at statutory services.
The project has 3 part time Project Workers (Daniele Cardoso, Jeanette Beblot & Barbara Stock) and a Project Manager, Suzy Pabla. The role of the project workers is to provide support via community hubs and 1:1 case work.
