Safe Haven Project
Nechells Safe Haven is a project is funded by the Big Lottery through Reaching Communities.
Delivered Nechells POD, the Safe Haven Project has three key outcomes:
1 – More residents of all ages are engaged in positive activities that improve community cohesion and reduce social isolation.
2 – More adults are engaged in training, volunteering and self-development activities, improving their skills and enabling further learning and employment.
3 – Older people, adults and children, experience improved mental and physical well-being through participation in activities that promote healthier lifestyles.
Since the project started, in 2015, we have been very busy organising lots of Family Learning opportunities for Nechells residents. So far we have Family Fitness, Story Telling and Arts and Crafts sessions to keep families occupied after school both in the holidays and during term time.
We also have a Community Café each week, run by volunteers. We are always looking for more helpers, so if you are interested in joining in please have a look at the Volunteer with Us secion of our Get Involved page.
If you are interested in developing your learning, we have teamed up with Joseph Chamberlain College to offer a wide range of courses.
To find out more call into Nechells POD and meet our Safe Haven Co-ordinator, Sheena Begum. If you have any ideas for services or activities you would like us to run, you can also speak to Sheena. She is always interested in finding out what Nechells residents want.
