Project Care

Project Care is hoping to provide two part-time care workers.
One for the elderly to provide home visits with practical assistance; some transport to hospital and/or shops; form filling, and a person who will be there as a "friend".
The other would be for single parent families and their children.

March 2017 - February 2020

  • Need

    Need

    Having been founded in 2002, we work in an area that is in the top 10% deprivation (national statistics) and this principally affects young people and the elderly. The violent crime rate is 53% higher than the national average. 81% of the residents are in social groups C – E.

    There are families in a situation of social melt-down; having attendance difficulties at school with children, and they also need resources to assist the family group.


    Solution

    The Hanworth & Feltham Project believes that by our work, we will help relieve some of the pressure that our families face in their daily lives. We will provide vital time and space in families’ lives.

    We believe that this time and space helps strengthen the family unit to support parents in raising their children.

    In terms of the elderly, the Project aims to improve the quality of the individual’s life and for them to enjoy their years with self-respect and dignity.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Social Work – Community Care

    Activities

    » We concentrate on visiting and caring for the housebound and elderly. This is very regular, and includes help with pensions and food delivery.

    Aim 2

    Social Work – Youth Work

    Activities

    » Sexual health counselling as well as some personal mentoring has taken place. A few single mothers have been assisted.

    Aim 3

    The Summer Project Consortium – Bude, Cornwall

    Leadership skills enhanced.

    We believe all children deserve the best possible opportunities and that, by our work with the provision of grants, we help extend the boundaries of what is possible.




    Risk

    The primary risk is one of fund-raising and the receipt of funds from charities; trusts and donors.
    A Charity Administrator has been recently appointed to do fund-raising to facilitate the funds to achieve the success of Project Care within the Hanworth and Feltham Project.

    Reporting

    There will be an annual Chairman's report.
    More frequent reports can be produced depending on the request of the donor(s).
    The report(s) will demonstrate funds raised; how they have been spent as well as showing case studies.
