Later this month, the Freedom Community Project will start weekly sessions in Warsop Parish, offering benefit support, housing support, debt advice and a food bank.
The Freedom Community Project works in communities across the North East Midlands and Yorkshire to support people with problems and crises and to strengthen communities. At each of its support centres, Freedom offers a free drop-in cafe, support services (including benefit issues, debt and housing problems) and volunteering opportunities. They also offer specialist support for mental health issues and to those affected by domestic violence. In addition, Freedom runs social events throughout the year that bring the community together.
Big Warsop is funding the Freedom Project to run two support centres each week in Warsop Parish from November 2018. The support centres will offer the full range of Freedom’s services, including access to client support workers and money advisors. All activities offered by the Freedom Project will be free to those who use the services.
Freedom will based at Warsop Methodist Church from 9am to 1pm on Thursdays and at Meden Vale Methodist Church from 9am to 1pm on Fridays. Sessions will start from 22nd November.
