Nail Cutting

Prama offer a Nail Cutting Service if you have poor mobility, poor eyesight, are a low risk diabetic or take an anticoagulant e.g. Warfarin.  Our Nail care workers are trained by the PCT Podiatry services department.  Your doctor or medical surgery will need to confirm that it is safe for us to cut your nails rather than a fully trained chiropodist, we will take care of that for you.

There is a fee of £17 to cut your toe nails or finger nails, discounts may apply for people in the same household and for additional nail cutting.  We will supply to you, at the first visit, your own set of clippers and nail file in a small case, the charge for these is £10.50.  We will only use the clippers provided by us. If you would like to have your nails cut with us, please get in touch by ringing Prama on 01202 207308.

Local areas covered are Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Blandford, Wimborne and Ferndown.

Poole Conversation

It’s not often that you get the Assistant Chief Constable, the Mayor, the hospital Chief Executive, the Leader of the Council, the Principal of the College and numerous other movers and shakers in one room with representatives from churches, voluntary groups, business and statutory sectors for a big conversation on working together.

However that’s what happened on Wednesday 29th June at Poole’s Thistle Hotel, as over 150 of the towns leaders, influencers and charities (including Prama) and churches came together for the Poole Conversation. The first event of its kind in the area, celebrated over 300 current activities that the churches of Poole are already running in the town thanks to over 200,000 volunteer hours!  This strategic conversation had the aim of looking at what still needed to be done to properly care for our communities and how we can use all the available resources of faith, voluntary, business, and statutory sectors to make things happen on the ground.

Speaker Group with Steve Robinson

Debra Green OBE from national charity Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) was asked by Jackie Leswell, the chair of Churches Together in Poole, to come and facilitate this conversation.  ROC have run over 150 of these across the country and have huge experience of working with the police and other partners to bring change to individual lives.

So, with the support of local charities Prama and Livability, the invitations went out to all sectors to join in. The Faithworks Wessex team undertook an audit of existing church activity in the community that showed a plethora of community help including at least 20 parent and toddler groups with 900 attending regularly and 13 lunch clubs with over 325 attendees.

The conversation asked “what are the gaps and big issues facing the town?” “What projects could meet those gaps?” and “What resources have we got to meet them?”

The aim was not just to talk, but to identify and prioritise projects that the attending organisations could achieve together and meet a real need for the people of Poole with the minimum of cost and red tape.

Steve Robinson, CEO of local charity Prama, the lead sponsor of the event said “In such a confusing national situation I see this is a ray of hope. We have to confront the realities of ever-reducing social care funding trying to meet ever-growing need within our communities -particularly in issues of ageing, loneliness and social exclusion. To have a day like this, where key strategic leaders and folk from the grass-roots are committing to work together, is an excellent model for the future”.
