Nechells Safe Haven was a project funded by the Big Lottery through Reaching Communities.

The Safe Haven Project had three key outcomes:

1 – More residents of all ages are engaged in positive activities that improve community cohesion and reduce social isolation.

2 – More adults are engaged in training, volunteering and self-development activities, improving their skills and enabling further learning and employment.

3 – Older people, adults and children, experience improved mental and physical well-being through participation in activities that promote healthier lifestyles.

The project started, in 2015 and ran for 3 years ending in May 2018. During this time we organised lots of opportunities for Nechells residents and we also organised a variety of trips. The project was very popular and successful in many ways.

In the New Year of 2019, Nechells POD will be able to continue to provide such great service to Nechells residents with our newly funded community project called All of Us Project to find out more call into Nechells POD.
