UK FOOD AID COMMUNITY CIC
The aim is to promote wellbeing, sustainable good quality of life, and an inclusive supportive and caring community, and have this managed more locally through a community cooperative, linking individuals with services more in tune with their needs. This will obviously take time and effort and may take up to three years to fully achieve.
Formal organisational and institutional structures tend to create and encourage generations to be apart. This project aims to explore different ways to organise public service and related community activity and be proactive in creating intergenerational opportunities and ways of doing things, including providing services or short-term programmes to promote understanding across generations and build a more cohesive community.
