The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way of life. We managed to adapt and provide our support services regardless of the adversity.  During this period, we had to build resilience within the communities and learn how to talk and support on another. We launched our bi-weekly inspirational talk show on Deeplomatikk radio where people can share their positive and inspirational stories to improve mental wellbeing and help encourage one another. This has had a positive impact across the communities.

We have so far delivered over 150 shows with experts by experience. We have now built a bespoke show for dads/men help improve their wellbeing seeing in national statistics of suicide in men higher than women. Our platform enables inclusion and conversations that inspire systematic changes that can help everyone to fulfil their potential.

We believe that forming is a key part of integrating people of all ages into the community. Our projects provide community-led activities that support people to form in a safe space, embrace inclusivity and reconnect especially after COVID19. We are also now providing support to help with the cost-of-living crisis especially in the marginalised communities. This is enabling us to go further and build stronger relationships with in and across wider communities. We continuously maintain and form relationships with families across Nottingham as community engagement is at the heart of what we do. 

We are pushing the greener and cleaner initiative as part of our building sustainable communities. We have recently created The Dad's Garden which a community-led green space, developed by our team of dads for the people and communities. Our aim is to encourage people to look after the environment they live in, healthy lifestyle and improving their wellbeing. The garden is an open green space that is peaceful, safe, and calming.  We also aim to provide healing through nature and gardening as well as healthy lifestyle activities whilst rebuilding strong community connections. The dads are also creating a remembrance bench for all the men that lost their fight in battling mental health illness.  To dad we have had 10 sessions in the community where diverse people within the community came to do some gardening and socialise with others. Come down to one of our weekly sessions to get involved in a variety of different activities; from gardening, healthy eating and healthy living workshops, there is something for everybody at the garden to enjoy and participate in.

 

We have hosted one of the biggest Diverse Big Jubilee Lunch to celebrate the Queens Platinum jubilee, promote community cohesion, diversity and inclusion. We had over 300 people on the day that either sat down for lunch or took some take-away. This also helped to break down the barriers of anti-social behaviour as we saw the diverse communities come together to share a plate of food especially those that have been impacted by the cost-of-living crisis. We also deliver bi-monthly community engagement activities that rotate from either the young people only or everyone within the communities. We have seen over 1000 people connect to foster positive connections.

 

We are delivering a weekly BAME dads programme that incorporates the local refugees. To date we have delivered 72 support and sessions to 180 dads within the BAME communities.
