Who we are and what we do...
wHoo Cares is a community interest company created to support individuals on the Hoo Peninsula. We know that everyone is unique and sometimes we all need a bit of extra help which will enable us to manage the challenges we face.
The formation of wHoo Cares began in early 2015 and was developed by a group of volunteers (currently serving as the Board of Directors) and a team from DERiC (Developing and Empowering Resources in Communities) along with the support of Medway Council.
HOW IT WORKS: Our Community Life Planning Coordinator works with individuals to create a person centred life plan which identifies things that make a difference to their lives, whether it's a chat and a cuppa once a week, help getting to the local coffee morning or support getting to GP or hospital appointments. We then match the individuals with our volunteer Community Supporters who work in partnership with a person to achieve the goals identified in the Life Plan. There is no charge for the services we provide to individuals.
Our aims are to reduce social isolation while strengthening communities on the Peninsula and to establish an innovative and creative new model of support for vulnerable people and their carers. Our key purpose is to work with local individuals, communities and organisations all over the Peninsula and as a CIC, any profits we make will be invested back into our community.
