Pearls of Cheshire is a community based organisation supporting and helping disadvantaged women and youths across Cheshire East and beyond meeting their physical, mental, holistic and economical needs.
We provide culturally sensitive and appropriate services and also specific support based on disability which makes us stand out.
The Pearls of Cheshire aims to provide specific tailored support to each service user, without any judgement. We have a pool of experienced and qualified professionals working with us and also volunteering for us.
Whilst there are a number of food banks in Cheshire; we realised the need for the provision of ethnical foods. The Pearls of Cheshire aims to close that gap and ensure that all women and children are free from food poverty and that is why our food bank meets some 'overlooked' needs of women from ethnic minority communities.
Our community is full of people who want to help. We work to help the people providing services with the people who need them. Come connect with people in new ways.
Your support can make such a difference.
Hear from the people we work with to understand just how much!
"I spoke to Charity about some issues regarding my child. She sent a referral to one of the partner agencies. Within a week, I got an appointment and we have met with the services. I was shocked to get such a quick response, definitely not in Macclesfield - where everything is on the slow!! Great work Pearl's of Cheshire."
In February I was placed in a refuge for women and children in Buxton. Even though the refuge is full of women and children and the staff and their best to support, I felt so isolated and alone with my 1 year old son. No one understood my culture or tried to understand me. One of the former resident told me about Pearls of Cheshire and how she was accepted and felt a sense of belonging. I have been coming to Pearls of Cheshire for one to one support and for social groups. I have also been attending a sewing project which I’m very excited about. I no longer feel alone, I’ve made some good friends with other mums who understand me. Pearls of Cheshire have been helping me with nappies and bus fares to come to the groups because I don’t have access to public funds. I can surely say that my mental health has improved so much since coming to Pearls of Cheshire as I no longer feel alone but a part of a great community.
Thank you Pearls of Cheshire for empowering us.
