In spending a while with the idea in mind, now is the right time, we feel, to proceed in making our idea of a Wirral based Community Interest Company (aimed at supporting families of substance misusers) official. The Community Interest Company will be run by myself, my husband and at least 3 volunteer trustees from different backgrounds.
Derived from personal experiences the aim of our project is to have premises to incorporate a secondhand shop, a workshop for projects including upcycling and furniture restoration to sell to help raise funds, and a community room for families to relax, grab a coffee and also where support sessions can be help run by professionals.
The funds raised will be used to assist in registering the CIC officially and raising awareness in the local area through different channels and promoting our cause and services which will be offered.
Once officially registered and feedback collated (we already have a lot of positive feeback from services, service users and families alike) additional applications to funding can also be madeto further help the official launch and onwards.
We hope you can support us and thank you for your time.
