Closer to Home visits St Martin

10 March 2020

Please note: this event has been postponed. For more information, visit the Government of Jersey website.

On Thursday 12 March from 2pm to 7pm, St Martin’s Public Hall will welcome parishioners and Islanders from further afield for the third Closer to Home roadshow. 

Closer to Home – which visits a different parish every month – brings together government services and the voluntary sector to offer a range of free support, advice and guidance.

The event on Thursday 12 March will include:
  • Advice from Andium Homes, Citizen’s Advice Jersey, Headway Jersey, and from Child and Family Services
  • Support for mental health for adults and children from the YES Project, Barnados, and the Listening Lounge
  • Support for physical health from Jersey Stroke, Jersey Sport, the Help2Quit team and Cardiac and Respiratory Nurse specialist teams
  • Information and learning from Jersey Library, Enable Jersey, EyeCan and LibertyBus

By bringing together government services, the voluntary and community sector, and parishes, Closer to Home makes it easier for people to access activities and services that can improve their wellbeing. 

Tracey O’Regan, Fundraising and Operations Manager at Stroke Association, said: “The roadshows are proving to be a valuable way of reaching out to Islanders. At the first two roadshows, around 40 people asked us to check their blood pressure and we advised almost half of them to see a GP - in some cases urgently. 

“Many of the people we spoke to were older and less mobile and could otherwise struggle to attend their GP surgery for a check. We’ve been able to use the roadshows to bring support directly to those who need it.”
