The Ladywood Community Project has existed as an organisation to help families and the community for the last 33 years and has had charitable status since November 2013.
We help families on low incomes or in financial hardship not only to manage their day to day needs but encourages them to feel part of the community and not so isolated with their problems. We actively listen to families and try to shape our services to pick up on the things they are struggling with.
We provide assistance to those who are in a crisis by giving emergency help with gas/electricity, helping with school uniforms, bus fares, nappies and children’s clothes and toys, fresh food, referring to food bank, benefits advice, Credit Union.
Support & Encouragement
We encourage families to drop in and use our garden, kitchen and lounge, have free refreshments, meet other families, get help and advice, join one of our groups or activities or go on our trips. We run a popular play and stay group giving parents and children opportunities to learn through play, craft and trips to enhance children’s experiences and encourage development.
We want families to feel part of a wider community that can offer friendships, shared leisure and be an active part of our team to address issues that worry them. We achieve this through practical, educational, physical, and financial interventions for those most in need of support.
The project is now a well-known and trusted part of the Ladywood community and is used extensively.
