Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am writing to you today from Bridgend Community Outreach Centre. (CIC 11367568) I would like to make you aware of our services that may benefit some of your families. Along with several other projects, including our food security projects, where we offer £5 food bags for collection.
We are now running our connect project, this offers free support and help to families with children. We offer support and advice, Help families to look for playgroups or parent and child groups, support for single parents or families with children up to age 16, and help them access any services or benefits they are entitled to. The connect worker will build a relationship with the family and be there to support them, even if it’s just a chat with another adult. ( all support staff hold a safeguarding qualification and DBS checked)
We are also running our young mentors scheme, this involves a group of volunteers that are aged 18-25 who support teenage family members, their befriending and support can range from encouraging young people to make friends and join groups to encouragement to attend school. The young mentor project also provides confidence building and can be accessed from home or local cafes, schools or youth clubs ( all our young mentors have a child safeguarding qualification)
We run an adult training centre for over 16’s where we offer a variety of courses from food handling, customer service qualifications, drug and alcohol courses, parenting courses and many more, these courses are done on line at home with an interactive tutor or in the centre with our own teaching assistant.
If you may have any families that may benefit from these, or any other of our services please feel free to refer them or pass on our details for a self referral, I have attached a referral form.
