Keyworth and District Community Concern Trust

The Trust was formed 30 years ago to co-ordinate and assist local groups in looking after the needs of the elderly, handicapped and those less fortunate within our Community. The aim is to help and advise both Groups and individuals. In today's fast moving environment concern for those in need often passes unnoticed and it is the purpose of our Group to take up wherever possible, suitable causes within the areas served – the catchment area of South Wolds School – and provide relief and respite for the carers of the disadvantaged amongst us.

The Trust is supported by the Parish Council and many other organisations within the community and, whilst we are prepared to consider a number of forms of help, our main services consist of the provision of the KEYWORTH COMMUNITY BUS which provides valuable help to the community by providing transport to day centres and shopping trips for the over-60s. Without the service many would be housebound and unable to shop for themselves and also the TUESDAY CLUB DAY CENTRE for the elderly and handicapped, providing day care for our members and much needed respite for their carers.

The Trust operates two modern, wheelchair-adapted minibuses; a Mercedes Sprinter and a Fiat Ducato, one has 12 seats and one has 16 seats. The vehicles are also available for group hire. The Trust is always looking for volunteers to drive the bus or to help in other services. If you would like to help please contact Mr D E Gee.

Quercus Communities

Quercus Communities are a new CIC that are offering an all inclusive care farm service based within a fully working farm.

Care farming is the provision of care combined with meaningful work, it can also be called ecotherapy. It is carried out on farms, woodlands and in market gardens with those who are often most vulnerable and excluded by society. It is an innovation in health and social care that provides an excellent opportunity for participants to reconnect with themselves, nature, each other and worthwhile work. Many participants on care farms experience improvements to their physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being. Participants connect with a healthy daily structure and meaningful work in a natural environment gaining social, educational and training benefits.

The benefits for participants are huge and include:

- Increased confidence, social interaction and group skills
- Improved physical and mental well being
- Development of routine, self reliance and a sense of achievement
- Learning skills in organic husbandry growing vegetables, herbs and cut flowers

Central Nottinghamshire Association for Mental Health - Family Support Scheme

Central Notts. Mind first set up the Family Support Scheme in 1978 to assist families caring for an elderly confused relative at home.

The help provided through the Scheme is in the form of day care at various centres throughout Central Nott.

This kind of support is essential because, contrary to popular belief, only 10% of elderly mentally ill people receive some form of institutional care; the majority are mainly looked after by relatives within their own (or their carer?s) home.

Referral to the Scheme is usually made by professionals working in Health or Social Services. However, if it is not possible to go through such channels, a private referral can be made by telephoning the MIND office on Mansfield (01623) 658044.
