This project recognises that a new segment of the populations are enduring poverty and traditional support measures are inappropriate. Educated, home owning, people are now needing emergency support. The project seeks to learn from the experiences of the participating partners how new actions are alleviating this new poverty.
At our recent breakfast we talked about the major issue of transport for older people and how a lack of transport often means that people become housebound, not because they can't physically get out.
We want to encourage churches to help local Community Transport Charity Sedcat Community Transport to find volunteers so in turn, they will have resources to help transport people to the groups and activities happening in the churches. Genius, right?
