Appreciate U is a Community interest company, based within the West Midlands area.
We work with socially isolated and disadvantaged adults from the ages of 18.
We work with adults who vary from diverse, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Appreciate U has been funded by the National lottery, we are grateful for the support which enables us carry out this project.
The group holds coffee mornings to the disadvantaged at Wednesfield Community Centre and Springvale Sports and Social Club in Bilston.
At the events, vulnerable people can enjoy a cup of tea, light refreshments and arts and crafts activities.
It also provides people with the chance to make new friends and get support.
But bosses want to do more.
They are asking for money to help expand their service to people's homes.
Manager Anna McKen said: "The additional funding would enable us to create a lasting change in the community, reducing social isolation."
