ABOUT US


Mycenae Reach Out project


Established in July 2017, Deborah Fitzpatrick  has been our Community Project Outreach Co-ordinator.


Our first project was to look after our local seniors and develop a drop in café.  We now have a lively bunch of seniors who get together and where friendships have been made and support given to each other in times of distress.  We know some folk only get out to attend the drop in café once a week. Reach Out offers events and regular programmes to help our local communities reduce loneliness - we're reaching out!

 

Our approach

The Reach Out programme supports those that are socially isolated and suffer poor physical and mental health and loneliness in our community.   We try to connect those from hard to reach groups to get together and make friends. Mycenae Reach Out works to support those community members and signposts to other partnership organisations who can give expert advice.

  • A weekly Drop in Café for seniors

Funding into the future
