What makes us different?

KeyRing in Sandwell is unique to other services, alongside the more traditional support services we offer community support. Community support includes our community hub session and building network’s of connection across the Sandwell area.

We believe that every person has something to offer and we can link you in with other people within our service for you to offer/receive support.

If you would like to be part of KeyRing, you are more than welcome to attend our community hub sessions. Any member of the community is welcomed to attend these sessions.

Wednesdays 10am-12pm - Wood Lane Community Centre, 157 Wood Lane, West Bromwich, B70 9PT.

If you would like support or to meet new people and make some new friends, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

When Imogen came to KeyRing she was homeless and recently bereaved. Her self-esteem was low, she was feeling very isolated and had a lot of debt.

We supported her with exercises to encourage healthy self-esteem. Imogen worked on thinking more positively and dealing with anger. She arranged payment plans with debtors and thought of ways to prevent future debt. Imogen now opens her bills and letters and knows who she can speak with if there is something that she does not understand.

She identified groups that she wanted to be part of and KeyRing supported her to attend. Working alongside the local housing provider, Imogen has found a flat that she loves.

Grimsby Networks

Grimsby, also Great Grimsby, is a large coastal English seaport in North East Lincolnshire. It ran the largest fishing fleet in the world by the mid-20th century, but fishing declined dramatically after the Cod Wars denied UK access to Icelandic fishing grounds.

Grimsby is the main cultural, shopping and industrial centre for much of northern and eastern Lincolnshire.

Grimsby people are called Grimbarians; the term codhead is also used jokingly, often for Grimsby football supporters. 

Great Grimsby Day is 22 January.

KeyRing have been supporting Grimbarians since 2011. We offer support in many areas including the Willows, Nunsthorpe, Cleethorpes and East & West Marsh. We support people with many different needs who want to live independently. Our Community Enablers can help you with managing your money, looking after your home and helping you to get involved in your community, as well as linking you up with other people in the area.

We have a variety of monthly activities that you can get involved with if you want to.

KeyRing think it is important for you be to be as independent as possible. We can support you in the way that you want.

Our hourly rate is £13.50, and we will consider referrals from anyone.

For more information contact or on 07717 894476.

Josh was living in a residential service and wanted to live independently.

Josh is 26 years old and has been with KeyRing for six weeks. Josh was living in a residential service for people with a learning disability. This was not a suitable place for Josh who wanted to live independently.

Josh found himself a flat, but the landlord was a little concerned and wanted Josh to have a guarantor.

Josh’s social worker made a referral to KeyRing. We contacted the landlord and discussed how we would support Josh to be a suitable tenant and Josh was able to move in.

Josh has an appointee but feels he is capable of managing his own money. We are working with him to achieve this.

Josh “previously called me several times a day, this has almost reduced to no calls, which I see as a real positive in his transition to independent living."

Paul is living on his own for the first time.

Paul is just on his way to pick up the keys to his new place. Paul is 28 and it’s the first time he’s lived on his own. He is “really excited to be living independently”.

He joined KeyRing 4 months ago and we’ve been supporting him to prepare for a move away from the family home and to find a property that he loves. During those four months we’ve also supported Paul and his Dad through the unexpected loss of Paul’s mum.

Paul’s dad gave up work for a period of time because Paul had never been on his own during the day before. Now Paul’s dad has felt able to resume work.

We’ve connected Paul with the local community as well. He only moved to the area 5 months ago and he is already well on his way to filling every day. He is especially keen to get a job in one of the local charity shops just as soon as they reopen.

Paul has also made friends with other Members. Paul’s dog Alfie has been the perfect ice breaker and one of the other Members is learning about looking after a pet from Paul.

Paul is so keen to build his independence that he has already memorised the bus routes he needs to take after being shown just once.

We are sure that Paul will bring lots of experience and passion to the local network and we can hardly wait to get him involved.
