The Churn Project has been supporting vulnerable and marginalised people across the community in Cirencester and nearby villages since 2001.
Our aims are to reduce isolation and improve wellbeing, particularly for those who are lonely, at a point of crisis or transition in their lives, or experiencing poverty or mental health issues. Our vision is that all our residents are included and involved in their community, feel supported and valued and have the opportunity to achieve their potential. We support over 2000 people each year, focusing on older people, young vulnerable families and those who are unemployed or low skilled. We offer a mix of 1:1 support and group activities, catering to different interests and needs.
We work alongside our clients to help find practical solutions to the issues they face. People tell us that coming to the Churn helps improve their wellbeing and makes them feel less isolated.
We are proud of our relationships with the people we support and listen, respond and help to bring about positive change.
