CURRENT PROJECTS

MakerLife Ashford:
Co-Learning

MakerLife Ashford’s Co-Learning: Life and Work Skills programme launched in January 2021, and is an 8 week programme.

On this programme our members have access to life and work skills workshops including cookery skills; money management; personal wellbeing; IT skills; job searches and CV writing, as well as other creative skills. Members also have access to assessment tools that help to support their wellbeing and career development. The aim is to upskill and connect members with training, jobs and work experience opportunities.

Family Food & Fun

Family Food & Fun is a holiday club for families with primary school aged children (5-11), where the whole family can come and enjoy food, crafts and a whole lot of fun. 

We know that it can be a challenge to feed, and entertain children during the school holidays- especially if finances are tight.

We wanted to create a safe and fun environment to meet that need for the families in Ashford. 

RENEW WELLBEING

Renew Wellbeing is a national charity helping churches open safe places, in partnership with mental health teams. These aim to improve mental and emotional wellbeing by creating simple cafe style spaces run by local churches where hobbies and activities are shared or co-produced. 

At Ashford Together we have partnered with Renew Wellbeing to open weekly Renew Wellbeing spaces- First launched by Willesborough Baptist last year, Ashford Together now are working towards opening 3 more spaces across Ashford in 2022. 

Move-on Mentoring

Move-On Mentoring is a team of mentors investing in our former Winter Night Shelter guests and other former homeless people as they transition into independent living.

At the very heart is friendship and a supportive ear, giving space for questions and sign-posting to other help and support. Our wider partnership gives advice about money management and access to other services such as health, job searches, and navigation through forms and paperwork.

If you would like to be a mentor, or for more information, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

COvid 19 Hardship Clinic

The Ashford Together COVID-19 Hardship Clinic is a signposting clinic pointing people in the direction of specific support networks for their needs.

Whether needing access to family support, foodbanks, financial advice, local/central Government services or something else, we will be able to help people access the support they need as we all navigate this pandemic the best we can.
