Getting Going

The European Social Fund has given us some money to help people get into work or education, the course will run every week and will be 1-2 sessions per week for around 3 hrs per session. We are looking to run this course online so a good knowledge of being able to access Zoom. We are looking to have 3 cohorts throughout and will finish end May 2021. It would be lovely if volunteers could commit from beginning until the end.

About the host organisation

Hosted by: KeyRing Living Support Networks
Organisation Profile: KeyRing's support is based on people living in their own homes but sharing their skills and talents with each other and with their communities. We have a volunteer in each Network. The volunteer sees Members regularly and helps the group work together. The volunteer is like a good neighbour who will help out if difficulties arise. Because the volunteer lives in the community, they know what's going on and are able to help Members make links.We also have Community Support Workers and Supported Living Managers who make sure that Members get the support they need. KeyRing believes that Community Connections are very important. We encourage people to make good links in their neighbourhood. Our Members have saved lives, campaigned for street lights and run neighbourhood improvement campaigns. Our Small Sparks fund enables Members with an idea for their community to get a bit of funding to make things happen.
