Recent projects supported by the Southern CEF
Grass cutting made easy with CEF funding
Did you know that in the Selby and Ainsty Constituency, according to a report produced by Independent Age, there are an estimated 1,401 households not claiming pension credits to which they are entitled? The average weekly payment is £49.21, and it's thought that around £3.1 million pounds' worth of pensions credits are going unclaimed. For more information, the full study is available to view online here.
If you think this applies to yourself or someone you know, you can get further advice online from the government on how to claim pension credits here.
The shows will go on
Vision on Tour - outreach project by Selby District Vision
An outreach project taking eye health, sight loss prevention message and visual awareness has visited 24 villages in the Southern CEF area.
Reaching rural communities and getting this important message out by talking to:
• Social and recreational clubs and groups
• Primary school summer and Christmas fairs
• Information leaflets delivered directly to households
• Age UK groups
• Mobile Library service
• Local churches and pubs
• Horton Housing Community Cafes
• Over 50s/60s groups
• Community cafes, coffee mornings and afternoon tea groups

The project had excellent feedback from individuals and groups, who were impressed that this service has been delivered directly to them, removing the many issues surrounding transport and rural isolation.
