Aims and Purposes

We Aim To:

Offer a variety of solutions to loneliness and social isolation in and around the Fylde Coast area and improve Community cohesion.

Improve a members feeling of self-worth, making them feel that they are a valued part of the Community and not extraneous to it.

Support individuals in crisis and, where necessary, signpost them towards the professional help they need.

Support individuals within the community who do not often come into contact with the Authorities.

Provide a support facility to other major charities so that they can refer people to whom they are not able to provide the appropriate support.

Support vulnerable individuals and the victims of crime.

In Order To Do This We:

Host regular activities, events and meet-ups ranging from a simple chat and coffee to Sunday lunch, music & dance, keep fit, bingo, raffles, speakers, art provision, short break holidays, events and social occasions. We also encourage our members to take on ‘meet and greet’ roles within our meetings and to form ‘buddy’ partnerships with new members./span>

Work alongside GP practices to encourage them to ‘signpost’ patients to us when faced with illnesses caused by loneliness and isolation

Constantly update the list of services available for our members and signpost individuals towards specialist support agencies/organisations for help with their particular problem, where necessary.

Provide a happy and safe environment where young individuals on the autistic spectrum can come together to relax, learn to enjoy each others company and help to empower one another to become part of a larger Community.

JGF is open to all and aims to include as many sections of the community as possible. We help individuals of differing ages with differing mental/physical health problems and are an open group for all ages regardless of race, sexuality, disability and socio-economic background.
