Silver Lining Project works with participants from the age of 50 and over. We facilitate and enable participation in a variety of interesting activities, which will maintain and promote independence, general well-being and bringing people together to enjoy each other’s company. We are an inclusive organisation working with people of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds in our community. Alongside this we offer a home visiting to individuals, who might require support in accessing activities.

Currently Balsall Heath Church Centre is not open for any activities with the exception of the Thursday ‘Food bank’ session run by Narthex, however this is a limited service at this time.

The Silver Lining Team

Development Worker – Diane is our part time development worker and works 15 hour per week. She usually works Monday Wednesday and Thursdays. Diane leads on existing centre-based activities and has established links with the local and wider community. Her role is to develop, promote and enable participants to lead new activities within a welcoming, inclusive, community based centre. Diane has been in post for over five years.

Community Connector – Iffat is our part time community connector and works 15 hours per week. She usually works Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. Iffat was recruited in January 2020 and her role is to connect with local people aged 50+ inviting them to participate in growing locally developed activities that are led by participants. She engages with the local community to focus on developing and maintaining happy, healthy and fulfilling lives of the older people. Iffat is based at the church centre, however she will work within the community and visit people in their own homes.

Project Manager – Sue is the Project Manager and works a few hours per week providing staff support and reporting to the SLP steering group and the Joint Church Council. She has been in post for 6 years enabling participants and volunteers from both the congregation and the wider community as she supports the project.

Weekly Activities – We are currently not open for any centre-based activities, however we are in contact and connecting with participants and other organisations via a number of methods (Telephone, what’s app, texting, letters, emails and also doing doorstop visits)
