Description

CAP Enterprise helps people develop a more enterprising and 'can-do' approach to their personal and professional lives. Our team helps people with: - Starting up a new business - Registering as self-employed - Personal development - confidence building, goal setting and empowerment - Coaching and mentoring - Social enterprise support Every now and then (subject to funding) we also run action learning projects. These are projects where people work with others in a team to collaboratively complete a project or task, such as: converting a van into a campervan, running a pop-up shop, setting up a community event or some other learning project. Action learning is where people take on a new project and are able to learn new skills, improve confidence and achieve improved wellbeing.

Description

At The Romney Marsh Community Hub, we wish to help the health and wellbeing over the over 50’s. We support people in trying new experiences, meeting new people and have access to a range of services to keep people engaged and active within the local and surrounding communities. Whether people want to meet friends for a coffee or bite to eat, enjoy a hobby or interest with like-minded people or navigate your way through benefits and allowances, we are here to help. If people are looking to improve their health and wellbeing, we have a range of different activities and friendly classes that they can try such as Pilates, Tai Chi, Yoga, Keep Fit or even our seated exercise class. We aim to help people engage in activities both physical and non-physical with an emphasis on enjoyment and fun. We encourage those over 50 to become more active and try new things to help improve their overall wellbeing in a supportive and friendly environment. We run a number of craft classes for those that wish to learn new skills or continue practicing skills they have. Our day service provides a place where older people can meet with others of a similar age group for friendship and social interaction. We can also provide transport to and from a client’s home to help. Our information and advice services are here to help and support people. Benefit checks may reveal they are entitled to more than what they thought, we can help with the paperwork and or help submit forms online for them if they struggle with this. Our information and advice is impartial, easy to digest and is offered freely. We offer a selection on home cooked meals prepared daily in our kitchen. People are welcome to enjoy these meals here with friends, or if preferred we can deliver direct to the customers door to have at home. For people that need help at home with household tasks such as cleaning we have a Home Support service whereby we will send a fully DBS checked employee to you to help with household chores. We run a number of services including Dementia Coordinators to support people living with dementia and their careers. Anyone that has been affected by cancer is welcome to come along to one of our support groups and meet others that have had similar experiences to know they are not alone. We also host a number of clinics and support groups at the hub including footcare, diabetic eye screening, rheumatology, smoke free support and hearing clinics along with diabetes groups, ex armed forces meet ups and help with digital support. We have held a number of social events here, such as quiz nights, Race Nights and special luncheon’s
