Grantham & District Poverty Concern Group was formed by local churches and from this, the Grantham Passage was formed. It was established in 2001 by Ruby Stuckey MBE to support vulnerable members of the local community and its aims are the relief of both poverty and homelessness. It incorporates the Grantham Passage, which offers through various churches in Grantham a meeting place, company, hot food and drink, and assistance with access to services, responsible agencies and other community support. This support and the meals are run 365 days a year.

It maintains an ‘open door’ policy whereby assistance is given, after inquiry, to any applicant accepted as otherwise destitute. Grantham Poverty Concern / Grantham Passage have found that there are a small but persistent number of people in Grantham without shelter of any kind and there is also a significant number more who ‘sofa surf’. The help and support provided represent a way back for those who have fallen on hard times for whatever reason, the main conditions include mental health issues, dependency on drugs or alcohol, ex-offending, eviction, break-up with partner and 50% are struggling to overcome substance abuse. Families account for a proportion of the grants made and approximately 30 people attend each session of the Passage.

Sailability is the part of the Royal Yachting Association which organises sailing for anybody with any disability. It has branches around the country and encourages sailing at all levels, from the absolute beginner to those who represent their country at the Paralympics. Hykeham Sailability operates at the Hykeham Sailing Club. We depend almost entirely on donations and grants to pay for our costs and believe that no-one should be prevented from sailing because of the costs involved. We welcome anyone with any disability, with sailing experience, or with no experience in a boat at all. People can sail by themselves, with their carer or a helper, or can simply go for a sail with others in a larger boat with an experienced instructor.

Our boats are designed to be safe and easy to sail, and our volunteers are able to assist people in and out of the boats. Wheelchairs are catered for and we have hoists for lifting people in and out of boats. All sailing sessions are run by a RYA qualified Senior Instructor, assisted by Instructors. experienced sailors and volunteers. All sailing is always overseen by powered safety boats with RYA qualified crews, who are in radio contact with the Senior Instructor. We provide all necessary life-jackets, buoyancy aids and waterproofs. Hykeham Sailability meets every Friday from the start of May to October. There is a substantial club house, with a kitchen and good facilities, and volunteers are always present to help and advise.

Boston Women’s Aid operates across 770 square miles of South Lincolnshire (Boston Borough and South Holland districts).

BWA’s aims are the prevention of domestic abuse, increasing awareness of the dangers and potential outcomes, and reduction of harm as a result of abusive relationships, through:

– raising awareness of domestic abuse (DA) and what helps to make healthy relationships;
– ensuring that potential victims know of the support available;
– male victims feel that support/help is readily available/easily accessed;
– children are aware of help available, feel empowered to disclose issues of abuse and are helped;
– ensuring there are no perceived barriers to victims seeking support/refuge.

We operate outreach in Boston, Spalding, Holbeach, Sutton Bridge so that people can access advice/support locally if they are concerned that they may be in an abusive relationship. We also operate a telephone helpline to provide the same service remotely.

BWA operates two refuges, providing safe places for those fleeing DA for up to 8 families (8 women, 18 children, 8 babies total bed spaces).
