Compass Support, the charitable subsidiary of The Pioneer Group is pleased to have been able to continue to operate (COVID safely) from their two local community hubs at The Sanctuary in Castle Vale and the Falcon Lodge Community Hub. In the interest of public safety, some activities during 2021 were suspended, however the hubs are delighted to be able to offer a new calendar of activities for 2022. Why not drop in to one of these venues and see what activities and services are on offer?
The two venues offer welcoming, safe meeting points for community members to gather and either try new activities, volunteer in the local area, or access a range of support services.
Laura Griggs, Community Hub Manager, said:
We are proud to have been able to keep our doors open throughout the year in order to be that first point of support for the community. We have continued to provide valuable services for residents who felt the impact of the pandemic, whether it was through delivering food parcels, entertaining ‘wellbeing packs’ or organising toy drives.
The hubs are essential to the delivery of our services. We’re delighted to have them fully operational again and I would encourage anyone to drop in to discover our clubs and services. Keep an eye out on our Facebook group too as we’ll be adding new activities throughout the year.
