SPACE welcomes new services

Space logoSlough Council for Voluntary Service (SCVS) has announced the successful bidders in its round for SPACE funding in 2018.

The SPACE consortium brings together charities and voluntary groups who assist Slough residents with quality information and advice (e.g. around debt, benefits and immigration), provides support for carers and offers activities to help people to improve their wellbeing.

Autism Berkshire, Men’s Matters, Berkshire Education and Youth, Age UK, Rise and Shine and The Future Foundation have joined the consortium to provide new services in 2018.

These additional services will include information and advice for adults with autism, their parents and carers; cooking and digital skills courses for men; healthy activities for older and vulnerable people; community cohesion workshops and a shopping service for older people.

Ramesh Kukar, CEO of SCVS, said: “We look forward to working with a wide range of organisations across Slough to continue to provide quality and community based services which are focused on the needs of local residents.”

The new groups will work alongside other charities who are current SPACE associates and together they will ensure residents can access advice and support when they need it, as well as activities in the community to keep people active socially and physically.

For more information on SPACE and each service area, visit the Slough Advice Centre website.

A list of activities in the community is available, or visit Slough Carers Support website for details on support available.
