About this cause
The Net Community Hub is a small community space in Weedswood, offering a range of sessions and access to local agencies. Our aims and objectives are to provide a space for the community where activities can be undertaken regularly throughout the week, with the emphasis on helping combat social isolation in the large number of lonely older people in the area. We also host activities to aid mental health and well being in all ages, and are home to the volunteering group, Walderslade Together, who ensure that those with mobility problems are not excluded from the activities, with them and their volunteers bringing residents along to sessions.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The cafe brings many elderly, isolated people together, creating new friendships & encouraging participation in more activity for health & wellbeing. We host Hi Kent once a month, while Involving Medway, Time Credits, Porchlight & the local PCSO often drop by to connect with the local community. Walderslade Together are based at the Hub & work in partnership to bring along those most isolated.
