Portsmouth cooking group for older men gets £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund

on .

IMG 8477 webChop Cook Chat, a project developed by Portsmouth City Council's Independence and Wellbeing Team for older Portsmouth men to learn basic cookery skills, has been successful in bidding for £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund.

There are five Chop Cook Chat groups across Portsmouth, with most currently at capacity. The funding will be used to develop the Chop Cook Chat model so that community partners and other organisations can set up and run Chop Cook Chat groups independently. It will also enable the five existing community based groups to become fully autonomous in continuing to meet fortnightly and cook together. Both of these actions will help more men to access Chop Cook Chat and be able to benefit from it for a longer period of time.

Chop Cook Chat is for men aged 60 and above who have had a change in circumstances such as bereavement, taking on caring responsibilities, being diagnosed with a lifestyle related health condition or who have become socially isolated. They may never have had to shop, prepare or cook meals before.
