Advice for Isolated Communites challenges and reduces barriers of access to benefits and services for people within the 6 neighbourhoods. The project reduces physical barriers to accessing our services by being there, located within each neighbourhood so that locals do not have to travel to Wakefield to access our full services. We develop sustainable services by building up local volunteer networks within the areas and deliver skills and training that develop individual capacity and enable residents to overcome barriers.
We aim to work before, during and after the project by linking up with other third sector and local resident groups to jointly build a skills training programme – to develop our volunteer base but also to develop trained volunteers for other groups and to use a mix of skills training and volunteering work to help build the local skills base.
