A Spiritual Community Centre based in Louth is making its services more accessible and cohesive to the local community thanks to £1,200 from Platform Housing Groups Community Chest fund.


The Spiritualist Centre is open for everyone and provides an equal opportunity for people to come and meet other similar minded people and helps in reducing loneliness.


The funding has been able to help the group purchase resources such as a projector with audio, laptop and printer which are enabling much improved talks and presentations/workshops, opening them up to those with visual or audio impairments

They are also providing digital help and information.


Louth Spiritual Community Centre said: “We can’t thank Platform Housing Group enough for their generous funding, to provide equipment for talks to be held at the centre will create fantastic social value by tackling loneliness and isolation of some of the most vulnerable people that use our centre over the long term. It will allow people to connect and meet with people in a safe warm space improving their mental health and wellbeing.”


Marion Duffy, Platform Housing Group’s Chief Operations Officer said, “It’s fantastic to know that our Community Chest funding is helping such a diverse range of services for our local communities.
