4 Steps

Creating Sustainable Organisations CIC was founded to help support charity and voluntary organisations achieve the highest levels of self-sufficiency across all areas of their organisation. Our various programmes has been designed to enable organisations to become stronger and less reliant on Government and grant funding, building the skills and capabilities of the organisation’s team so that new income generation streams can flourish. Our unique ‘hands on’ project delivery approach helps us to develop relationships with our clients that result in organisations that are stronger and more efficient internally and more competitive externally. We believer it is our duty to share our knowledge and experience in a way that is practical, ethical and promotes sustainability and this is the philosophy that has shaped us as an organisation and lies behind the vision and values that drive us forward.

Age Well in Breightmet

Age Well in Breightmet is a community group running activities for older people (over 55’s) based at St. James’ Church Parish Centre, Breightmet which started Sept 2018.
Our aim is to improve the quality of life for older people living in Breightmet, reduce isolation and loneliness, support older people to find ways of continuing to use their wealth of skills and experience gained over their lifetime, and to promote a positive narrative about age and ageing.
We run two activities which are open to anyone over 55 and people who have caring responsibilities for an older person.
Age Well Wednesdays (2 - 4pm) is a weekly session for socialising and organised activities with refreshments. Activities during the afternoon include quizzes; arts and crafts, knit and natter, jigsaws, games, and occasionally bingo. We have occasional visiting speakers talking about age/wellbeing related topics such as preventing falls, making wills and power of attorney and becoming a Dementia Friend. We knitted poppies for a Remembrance Day display and Christmas Angels to give out to people in the local community. At the moment we are knitting Forget-me-not brooches to give out for Dementia Awareness in May.
We also run an Afternoon Tea on the third Monday each month between 2.00pm - 4.00pm. This is an opportunity for people to come to meet new people or chat with friends over sandwiches, cakes and a drink.
