Community Anchors

image community anchor badgeWe are delighted to be the first community organisation in Stockport to become Community Anchors!

Staff at the Olive Café have been the first to become Community Anchors as part of an initiative being introduced by The Prevention Alliance.

The Prevention Alliance (TPA) works with people from across Stockport to improve health and wellbeing, by focusing on peoples’ strengths, building confidence and encouraging people to become more connected with their community.

Community Anchors are people who are that first friendly face that you see when you arrive at a group or community space for the first time, helping you overcome any anxiety you may feel about trying something new. All Community Anchors will wear a TPA pin badge so they can be easily identified.

The team at the Olive Café pride themselves on being a friendly bunch, they now have the badge to prove it!
