Here at Ness M Care Foundation we offer a range of services to help improve the lives of people across Peterborough.
Ubuntu Coffee Mornings
Our Ubuntu Coffee Mornings encourage those who are socially isolated to build lasting relationships and friendships with people in similar situations in Peterborough and the surrounding area over a cup of coffee, a slice of cake, and some table games. Everyone is welcome to join us for some laughter and good conversation.
Our coffee mornings are named after the African philosophy of ‘Ubuntu’ which places emphasis on 'being self through others’, as we recognise that no-one in society should be left behind.
Ness M Care Foundation now provides funding for people living in the Peterborough area who are unable to fund their own therapy. The aim of this project is to support people so that they are capable of living a fulfilling life.
Community Walking Group
Ness M Care Foundation runs a community walking group in Itter Park, Peterborough to encourage residents to build up their social connections, whilst boosting their mental and physical health.
We meet at The Kiosk, every Tuesday at 11am.
By socially including everyone on each community walk no matter their physical ability, we hope to bring people in similar situations together to create long-lasting friendships, whilst reaping the benefits of gentle exercise.
Our volunteer walk leaders have been trained on how to deliver a community walk, ensuring that each participant’s needs are fully looked after. One-to-one walks are also available for people who would prefer not to join a group.
If you are interested in joining a community walk in Peterborough, just turn up or get in touch for mor information. If you would like to request a 1:1 walk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call, 01733 570999.
Thanks to Living Sport for funding our project.
This project aims to support adults at risk by building up their social contact. This can include face-to-face companionship through a range of activities (like walks in the park, going to the supermarket or meeting at a café etc.), well-being calls from volunteers, or access to professional therapy.
Defibrillators - At the Heart of Our Community
Ness M Care Foundation have installed a defibrillator outside Ness M Care Services' office in Peterborough. This is life-saving equipment worth seeing or knowing about.
Defibrillators are often installed within buildings, with limited access to the public. We wanted to ensure that this defibrillator is open and available to the public at any time of the day.
A few training sessions have already been organised by The Foundation in partnership with NHS East of England Ambulance Services who provide the trainers. It is our aim to hold training sessions for the local community in order to increase the awareness and to ensure that people know how to use the defibrillator should the need arise.
