“Need funding, not enough help, support or finances for mental health and learning disabilities. Also not much support from outside agencies”
“Routes for contributing to the community are probably not as obvious to the public”
“There are a good number of grassroots community-developed opportunities for people to get involved that are entirely inclusive, but rely on blood, sweat, tears of the volunteers who instigate them. There is little backing at a council or larger organisational level”.
How we are helping — by building funds and making grants
CFFC awards grants from a variety of its funds to support projects that help to build stronger communities.
St. Augustine’s Centre is a local charity that works with the most marginalised in Calderdale. They help people with whatever they need; hot meals, employment or immigration advice, a listening ear, ESOL classes (English for speakers of other languages) or just a cuppa! Over 30 languages are spoken at the Centre.
St. Augustine’s Centre received a CFFC grant to support the expansion of ESOL classes and to support their Welcome Café which will open 3 times a week and will adopt the Language Café model providing a social space with ESOL support.
