All of our Clergy, pastoral team and volunteers are doing what they can to help families and vulnerable people. Revd Elaine says: “The calls I make, the messages and emails received and the dialogue I have are many and varied. Some need reassurance during their time alone but others need more practical help especially those families with money worries".

COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Giving individuals and families a lift in life

Wellbeing, improving mental health, enabling fun and helping people are what we believe in at The Bodmin Way. A combination of grants procured by The Bodmin Way and donations from church members fund supporting the community. The needs in our community are varied and growing with the financial pressures people face.

 

We cannot describe on the web much of the support provided as it is very private.  However, there are many examples of the support given to families, children, vulnerable people, the financially challenged, the elderly and others going through a crisis that we can tell you about:  

  • Working with the foodbank, referring people and directly providing food for families when the foodbank is not open

  • Providing supermarket vouchers and help with fuel bills

  • Snack and activity bags as well as food parcels

  • Many activity ideas and resources online for those in need or lockdown

  • Pop up summer picnics in local parks and letters to Santa at Christmas

  • Health and wellbeing bags, essential baby bundles and family fun bags all giving children and families a lift 

  • Bags of items tailored for family care, ladies, senior ladies, gentlemen, teens and household essentials

  • Many guided walks along the Bodmin Way routes to improve health and wellbeing 

  • See also our Time Together cafe and day centre
