MHA Communities Cheshire West was established 30 years ago in Ellesmere Port with the aim of reducing social isolation and loneliness, to improve physical and mental wellbeing for older people aged 55 plus living in the community.
MHA provision is open to everyone regardless of belief or background and is inclusive of the BAME and LGBTQ+ communities. Locally they support over 230 members by running a range of weekly or monthly social activities including Lunch Clubs, activity sessions and exercise classes, dementia support groups and community transport. This is achieved through the support of 65 dedicated volunteers.
The provision of this grant will boost the current limited resources for this project and enable it to continue delivering the activities which both members and their carers rely on and enjoy.
