We work in an area of Peterborough with high deprivation supporting residents with Health & Wellbeing, Employability and Youth programmes, tackling Social Isolation and Exclusion and Social and Environmental issues through our Community Café & Garden.
We are a friendly and committed team of community workers and volunteers and we are here to support the people of the WestRaven community, and the wider Peterborough area. We work in collaboration with our friends and partners. We have a range of indoor and outdoor venues where we deliver all sorts of activities, events and workshops and create opportunities for people to volunteer. Together we are working towards building a sustainable legacy of better health and wellbeing for our communities.
We are an independent charity (CIO) and have a board of Trustees from the community, with one full time Garden Manager and one full time Café Manager.
We were setup with BigLocal money from the National Lottery and have an LTO (Local Trusted Organisation) called Cross Keys Homes who offer support, mostly in the form of managing HR contracts, payroll and supplying IT and email systems.
