Lottery cash sees Stoke-on-Trent charity prevent more people experiencing loneliness

March 3, 2020

 

Just over a year year after a Stoke-on-Trent community centre benefited from fund to help tackle loneliness, they say it has made a big difference.

Chell Area Family Action Group, based at the Whitfield Valley Centre in Fegg Hayes, was awarded nearly £100,000 in December 2018, from the Building Connections Fund developed in response to the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness to support projects that prevent or reduce isolation.

That has allowed it to buy a disabled friendly mini bus, expand its lunch club, take on more staff, and set up new projects such as Men In Sheds - which has given people the chance to socialise while carrying out practical work and learn DIY skills.
