For a number of years CAST has been searching for a building which can serve not only as our office but that will also be big enough to house our ongoing projects like the Thursday Lunch Club and all our future ideas, like the cook and eat cookery courses. We have looked at a number of buildings in Bacup but they have either been unsuitable or we have lost out…
A way for people to help each other with needs e.g. A fixed leaky tap could be paid for with a home-made child’sbirthday cake.
Supporting socially isolated young adultswith a healthy, safe environment in which to socialise
There will be adult and junior courses teaching basic skills, cooking fresh healthy meals whatever your budget and encouraging family recipe books
Creation of a ‘Community Pantry’ incorporating a fridge and freezer – food supplied by the community to assist lower income families and to provide social interaction with special events, sharing meals for all. This is a great example of the community helping itself.
This will create unrestricted income streams, leaving CAST able to support any project as necessary, building sustainability
This project saw us working with the community to identify heritage assets in Rossendale and place them on a register which will afford them some protection against future loss. It included historic and heritage talks about Rossendale and even though the project has been completed the community can still nominate heritage assets to go on a register.
Supporting those living with dementia, in social isolation or just lonely.
This project was run from home through the post. It kept the café customers in touch with each other through sending notecards and memory boxes were created with diaries, scrapbooks and personal memorabilia. All the resources and information were sent through the post and over the phone over an 8 month time period.
Like many other groups and charities we were fortunate to receive funding to keep us afloat whilst we couldn’t be out and about in the community.
