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!
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.

Funding into the future
We were successful in receiving funding from The Royal Borough of Greenwich for Mycenae Digital (Techy Time) for those brand new to Technology. Looking ahead we need to identify funding pots and to bid for applications to expand Mycenae Reach Out in helping our community. We have lots of ideas for the future of the project. Could you help us raise money? Could you sponsor what we do? If so, get in touch.
