I have seen a lot if problems here in this town over the years an would like to create a communication platform online an further to that be able to set up a building when the funding an business grows to allow for this. I know communication is the key to this an can help overcome all obstacles be it racism, poverty, lack of jobs, lack of food, childcare an so on. I have seen issues with my own eyes an due to this I have put my hand in my own pocket when my income would allow for this an becaue I knew people were beggin on the street to suppprt a drug habit I went into the store an purchased food an gave it to the (gentleman who is one of the reasons I want to create this physical and virtual platform) ex body builder an sat with him an had a conversation while he ate. I would love to purchase a building with kitchen facilities an space to create a gymnasium area an sleeping area an be able to pay kitchen staff an security so people like that gentleman and many many others on the same walk of life at present can come to our venue be given a high nutrition meal an a comfortable bed to sleep in an then go on their way to do their business, instead of go an chill at a mates or stay on the street because that friend has a girl friend coming over, the man I am speaking of is in 60’s an was a famous professional body builder in his hay day an due to his wife leaving him an not letting him have contact with his children has turned to substance abuse (depression can cause this). I can peraonally relate to his misfortune. I have seen friends of mine attend a a tennis court an be involved in violent acts because they asked someone to close the door an I think that was unnecessary so I would like to promote a one ness in the community where it is good to say please an thank you again instead of demoralising an it is beneficial to hold a door open for both a man an a a woman instead of not. I would like to encourage this through the trust I am seeking funding for. So an oap can leave their ground floor bedroom window open at night instead of fearing they will be burgaled an the only way to do this is encouraging security locally by making the council be pro active instead of saying they are doing things an clearly not doing it, dirt in the streets can only be stopped by encouragimg the youth of the community aswell as the adults (mainly adults as they set a very bad example to the kids) to use bins or put rubbish in their pocket til they see a bin and then empty their pockets. I remember when we used to see used needles on the street an I am grateful now just cans of soft drink an chocolate bar wrappers. With the help of your donations We can do this an start our walk on creating a beautiful thing in this town an I want any help possible to make this a success, when we have these people their we will even possibly begin a getting them suppprt or anything else that can provide a improving their life suppprt - action plans, social care plan, health care plans, psychiatry, making doctors appointments, making dentist appointments and basically this will require capable people who canhelp others with these requirments we will have to record these things and maybe just have them teady the day before an appointment, give them a lift to the place, or anything of that nature which means we will need IT equipment aswell. This project is going to cost a lot more than 50000 an my plan indicates to facilitate it for a year the costs will exceed 2 million however when we have people such as youngsters we can offer courses such as childcare, gardening, DIY, plumbing, electrians, IT, skill that can help them get a job if that is a possibility and with the help of local education providers we could possibly get some people certified with qualifications or vocational qualification to get that foot in the door, we can start having knitting time an sell the produced garment, painting, car work, provide many opportunities even graphic design, website development, wordprocessing.
First things first as the fifty thousand will assist with starting this with just providing a basic network an infrastructure to help others that really need it.
Tha k you
