Our Work

WECAN has been developing a portfolio of social care and social action projects. Our current primary scheme is United in Kind, funded by Essex County Council. Following two successful years of delivering acts of kindness across West Essex, the programme has now been extended for a further twelve months.

Read more about United in Kind and also United in Kind Radio – a community radio station we launched in December 2020.

We are currently engaged in a pilot project supporting the safe discharge of patients from hospital back to their homes. This involves ensuring the home is a clean and safe environment before the patient returns, and that they have adequate food supplies for the first few days back in their own place. We are also supporting with handy person tasks and digital kit to support independent living.

Launching in April 2021, we will be delivering a two year Digital Inclusion project. Further details to be announced shortly.

Find out how we work with Commissioners and VCSE’s to support the development of a thriving third sector in Uttlesford, Harlow and Epping Forest.
