Apple Tree Centre Carers Service

Carers Rights Word Cloud(3)_[655]_660_272_centre

 

We are launching a Carers Support Service in early Spring to serve Carers who are looking after elderly and frail members of their family.

We will be meeting on the first Friday of each month at the Apple Tree Centre from 11am to 12.30pm and we are looking to potentially hold our first Carers Meeting on Friday 6th March 2015.

At the Carers Meetings we will invite speakers from various Service Providers to attend. The speaker will be able to give information and leaflets about the service they are offering.

During the Carers Meeting there will be a break for tea and biscuits. If Carers would like to talk with the speaker from the Service Provider in private there will be an opportunity for this.

One of our objectives is to help and guide Carers to Service Providers who can help them in a time of their needs.

Please complete the attached application form and send by email to bharatlukka@hotmail.com or  patelkoki@hotmail.co.uk at your earliest convenience.

Kind regards

Koki Patel Project Coordinator

Here is just one example of Carers helping their elders in silence in spite of there being Service Providers who may be able to offer support and information.

I have just been talking to members of one family who are caring for their 92-year-old Mum without asking for any support. Their Mum is now at a stage where she is no longer able to care for herself and relies on her family to provide care for her.

Members of the family are exhausted and struggling to cope during the day and night. They are not sure who to ask for support.

They believe they are doing the right thing and do not want to let their Mum down.

GHU Board changes.

JSK members welcome to the summer edition of the GHU magazine.

We are now in the third year of operation in our new and purpose built Sanatan Mandir and Community centre (SMCC). With your kind support and gods will, SMCC is thriving. We have an ever growing number of people using the Mandir and the community facilities. The number of GHU and private activities held in the SMCC has seen a further growth this year. We continue to run the many community activities and were delighted when the Divas Dance Club joined the GHU and added to the variety. We are also delighted to inform that a new, and very energetic, Youth group has started up in the GHU. Please see within this magazine and our website for more information.

GHU Leadership changes.

The 2013 AGM took place in June this year. The GHU Governors presented a review of achievements, activities and the 2011/12 accounts to members. As per the GHU constitution, three Governors stepped down. We have to report that; very sadly, all three Governors chose not to stand for re-election. Ashwinbhai Soni and Rakeshbhai Amin informed that they, understandably, wished to take a break from the formal responsibilities of Governorship. They will however continue with GHU as informal consultants, providing project related support as required. Hasmukhbhai Mulji has reverted to a Co-opt Governor role.   

Priorities and working structure.

With a large debt and a reducing income conundrum, focus and priority is again placed in three major areas which can generate large revenues; the Mandir, Apple Tree Community Centre and Kitchen. The leadership of these three areas have the greatest responsibilities and therefore will have the greatest say and budget allocation.

New committee structure.

A new leadership and committee structure was agreed at the first committee meeting post AGM. Basically, the new structure releases the Governors and committee members to have holistic responsibilities and greater autonomy in areas where clear GHU objectives have been formally agreed. Also, in the spirit of empowering individuals within the committee to be more creative and taking on greater, non legal, responsibilities; “Co-Op Governor” positions have been created. Below is a table of the new committee structure.

We are also delighted to welcome three new committee members: Rameshbhai Shanker, Balbhai Shukla and Batukbhai Mehta.

General Volunteering.

The GHU is a volunteer led organisation. We are fortunate to have so many volunteers who step up and support activities when needed. However, there is always a need for new volunteers. We strongly request our members to help in whatever way they can to keep the organisation thriving.
