Silver Lining Project works with participants from the age of 50 and over. We facilitate and enable participation in a variety of interesting activities, to maintain and promote independence, general well-being and bring 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 visit to individuals who might require support in accessing activities.

The Silver Lining Team

Development Worker – Diane is our part time development worker leading 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. Iffat’s 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.

Foodbank – The Foodbank now operates on MONDAYS from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
