As the community gives to us, so Social Eyes now gives back to the community

At Social Eyes we are extremely lucky to have a fantastic group of parents/carers/Green team members and volunteers who support our mission to provide a place of safety, learning and growing for adults with mild/moderate learning disabilities and Autism. The service is a five day a week service, encouraging friendships and fun for disadvantaged adults.

We offer numerous activities at a number of sites within the local community; and by tailoring all our activities to meet individual needs and interests we have built a brilliant day service.

This Christmas we decided as the community gives to us, so we would give back to the community, in gratitude for their unending support for our initiatives, Covid restrictions allowing. We sent out a newsletter to our parents/carers and we were not disappointed with the result.

We looked around and chose: –

Shiloh Rotherham is a charity that offers support to adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. They provide person centred wrap-around services both at their day centre and via outreach services in the community. All donations received go towards resourcing their frontline services which include: housing advice, education & training, support for health & addictions, rapid re-housing assistance, personal mentoring, creative activities, catering and the provision of practical resources.

Everyone who is homeless or at risk of homelessness will receive a warm welcome at Shiloh.

They offer a safe place where you will be accepted and supported throughout your time with them. They work alongside every ‘guest’ of Shiloh, to help them to plan for and realise a better future. All of the services are available for self-referral, but referrals from partners are also accepted. 

We really value everyone who gives up their time to serve others and you are invited to join them.

Shiloh is an inspiring place where volunteers are supported to help make a lasting difference in people’s lives. They are very proud of their achievements, especially that in 2018 they received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.                                                                                   

It is a significant award which really highlights the impressive ongoing commitment and dedication of the volunteer team.

This will be an ongoing collaboration between the two groups as we enter 2022.
