CINTRE Extends Community Support with New Initiatives for Service Users
Cintre has a new Community Hub, where staff and service users across the charity meet to partake in diverse social events. Latest activity was "Just Pool-ing Around", at the local All Stars Snooker and Pool Hall. 7 teams of 2 each, 1 staff member and 1 service user per team. The competition was friendly but fierce and with an unblemished record of 6 wins out of 6, Majid and Colin were victorious! Soon in February there will another game of Football – and it will be the Hub’s, 4th match. The Hub is great because it includes staff and service users of all ages and abilities. Creating confidence and helping to build networks
STAMP OUT SOLITUDE CAMPAIGN (SOS). We are raising money towards Community Hub activities, and to end loneliness for adults with complex needs. So far we have raised £87.00 from a raffle at Christmas Party,. Please read article link.
VLOGS FOR SERVICE USERS: In another initiative to understand support needs, we are starting Vlogs with service users to begin an insight into their lives, and support. Here is a sample video featuring Sam, who lives at Cintre In-Via Supported Living Service.
