Boston Lithuanian Community - Speak Your Heart Easy

Last Updated: 29/01/2024

Our project will offer a range of services and activities to vulnerable community members, including translations, interpretations, and consultation sessions.

We will also have dedicated daily points of contact at our community centre and via telephone, staffed by trained group members who will guide and support individuals in accessing essential services.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • This initiative aims to support community members who are experiencing feelings of isolation and
    loneliness by helping them become more connected to their community. Our team of trained staff and volunteers will provide guidance and referrals to appropriate services, and offer support throughout their mental wellbeing journey. Our hope is that this will foster trust and encourage individuals to seek help when needed, and promote their integration within the community.
  • The objectives to protect patients from coercion and help people with mental health issues and healthcare professionals to identify patients with mental health issues, and to provide optimal patient care.
  • Our language interpreters and translators will help to reduce communication barriers between practitioner and patient and improve communication. Also, we will help to talk to the professionals of local institutions that will help support those of our group who are most in need.
  • Unemployment and low wages can have a significant impact on a person's mental wellbeing, potentially putting them at risk. Long-term unemployment can also lead to issues such as homelessness, anti social behaviour, and alcoholism. Our project aims to proactively address this by providing support to individuals in their job applications. Many members of the community may not be familiar with the importance of cover letters and CVs, and may not have had the opportunity to create these documents. By providing free consultation on drafting these documents, we aim to equip individuals with the necessary skills to succeed and reach their full potential.
