The project has been brought into fruition through the support and funding of Herefordshire LEADER rural fund and combined trading profits of C.A.R.E. (Herefordshire) CIC.
The new project brings into fruition a much needed community hub – a social venue which sets to redress rural social isolation and loneliness, through planned active ageing activities. C.A.R.E. CIC has a passion for seeing its communities flourish and hosts many intergenerational events; helping its older residents to keep physically and mentally well. Many of its social engagements are through intergenerational workshops that are inclusive to those living with dementia; helping its older and more vulnerable of residents to be socially connected and involved in community life.
C.A.R.E Herefordshire received a grant to support a project to undertake building alterations, provide additional heating and lighting, anti-slip flooring, an insulated ceiling and, commercial kitchen equipment to premises at Unit 4 and Unit B at Pontrilas Business Park:
