Support in community projects
|Organisation||Father Hudson's Society|
St George's House,
Father Hudson’s Care works with community groups to develop projects and services that meet local needs.
The projects that we currently work with are:
Anawim – supports vulnerable women across Birmingham who are involved in the criminal justice system to make positive changes in their lives.
Brushstrokes – supports disadvantaged people in Sandwell by providing practical resources and English classes and reaching out into the local community.
Hope – helps vulnerable and isolated people in Wolverhampton through outreach work, English classes and support groups.
Maryvale – provides social opportunities and befriending for older and disabled people.
New Heights – hosts social clubs, training, support groups and advisory services at the community café in the Kingstanding area of Birmingham.
Young at Heart – offers services for older people experiencing social isolation across North Staffordshire.
In some of these, Father Hudson’s became involved at the invitation of the parish or community group and in others we identified a need and worked with local people to research and develop services.
Father Hudson’s Care has enabled the local projects to grow, eventually to become independent charities in their own right. Even then, we continue to help them as required as they move forwards.
We provide assistance in many ways, such as recruiting staff and volunteers, budgeting and training, assistance with funding applications, researching and developing local projects, fundraising and marketing, and much more.
As well as the above, we provide support for the Heart of Tamworth, Kairos in Coventry, North Staffs Linkline and the Pastoral Care Project.
