The partnership between Sheepdrove and Neal’s Yard has enabled us to continue treating needy people who are over 55 or unpaid carers from a wider area than our other project funders allow. Our office has kept a database of people who previously had to be turned away as they didn’t fit our existing criteria. We are also continuing to give treatments to the Grenfell survivors which has been particularly rewarding as we have built up a strong relationship with the families at this very difficult time.

The service will be inclusive but focusing on the over 50s, unpaid carers, those with mental health or other medical issues or anyone who needs the support of this service who live in Church St. ward. We want to encourage participants to refer service to friends, family or neighbours who they think would benefit from our service. We will work with Denis Kane, the manager at Penfold Community Hub and volunteers wherever possible. We have a long standing relationship with Penfold and hold our Board and Therapist meetings there, as well as running other projects there. More info.

Genesis Wellbeing Matters 2019
status: finished for now
Munro Health will provide 40 Notting Hill Genesis (NHG) residents an initial free consultation to decide the most appropriate therapy for them. The treatments will be delivered mainly at Ernest Harriss House or Penfold Community Hub. Both are NHG sheltered housing schemes, where Munro Health uses a dedicated therapy room with a hydraulic couch in both. We have built up good working relationships in both venues, one is free other and the other is at discounted rate. Each participating resident will receive three hours of treatments. The benefits could help improve general mobility, wellbeing and address certain mental or physical issues. In both NHG schemes there are other activities during the week so the managers hope the increased footfall will increase the participation. More info.
