Welcome to the Stockwood Hub

St Monica Trust has been working in the community in Stockwood for almost 6 years to reduce loneliness and isolation amongst older people.

We have achieved this through working in partnership with a host of local community members as well as different local organisations, sharing their vision to help older people live more fulfilled lives. 

Led by our local Advisory Group, we help set up and run a varied programme of activities. We also run a Befriending Scheme, offering companionship and friendship for older people in their homes.

get involved

We are always looking for enthusiastic and knowledgable individuals to help run the Stockwood hub and there are several different opportunities to get involved in. Whether you have an hour or a day to spare, we will be able to find something extremely worthwhile for you to be involved with. 

Stockwood Advisory Group needs new members. St Monica Trust's Advisory Groups are made up of local older people who provide a great insight into their community, helping to inform and advise St Monica Trust on what can be done to help build community spirit through activities and events. Please contact Dan Lewin to find out more on 0117 305 2365.

St Monica Trust also runs a Befriending Scheme for isolated older people in the Stockwood area. If you know someone who would benefit from Befriending, or if you would like to volunteer as Befriender then please call Karen Bennett on 0117 305 2365. 

Love to walk? Fancy volunteering to become a Walk Leader and lead walks for older people? We are always looking for new leaders to join our team. Full training is provided. Please contact Dan Lewin on 0117 305 2365 to find out more. 

Do you love to paint, have a passion for singing or perhaps you're a keen cook or gardener? If so, why not share your skills with us? This could be setting up an activity or volunteering at an existing activity, there is always a way to get involved. Call the Stockwood hub on 0117 305 2365.
