OUR PROJECTS & ACTIVITIES:
SaffronSACC.cic: provides various practical projects and activities delivering Community based approaches, interventions and projects, listed below:
SENIOR LUNCHEON HUB
Enabling African-Caribbean vulnerable senior citizens (60plus) two days a week, to remain active and make friends, reducing isolation, culture specific food, providing companionship and befriending schemes.
Black Youth Skills Development Empowerment Programme – providing Young People with a safe space to combat the culture and impact of violence, crime, gang activity and develop leadership skills.
Because, for some young people poor behaviour, social anxiety and impulse control are an obstacle to achieving, the project offers anger management, anxiety and confidence-building courses and other personal development activity.
Working with 10 young people at a time the project aims to help them move on to a more satisfying life in which they are better equipped to fulfil their potential.
Participants will be assessed for needs, and attend personal development courses, targeted work ( drugs, sexual health, ASB, etc) interview techniques and CV writing and other means of helping them to be work-ready or prepared to get back into education
PARENTING & FAMILY SUPPORT HUB
offers advice, support and activities for children, young people and families for but not exclusive to African-Caribbean families.
Our family hub maintains close links with all providers of family and childhood services both locally and across Kent, which enables staff to assist families in accessing services for families with children.
