Ending Loneliness at the heart of the community


Our programme

In order to address the issue of loneliness, we have identified two groups of people that would greatly benefit from our programme: the elderly and the migrants. These two groups have indeed in common the challenge to cope with loneliness and lack social connection within the community. We believe that by bringing together generations and cultures, we can offer opportunities to engage and empower them and help make a difference in their life.

Leisure Activities


Craft & Design Crafting has long been considered a therapeutic activity suitable for the young and old. Research into the effects of crafting activities for older people shows positive outcomes, most notably a decrease in anxiety and depression. The therapeutic value comes in part from a participant’s need to concentrate and in doing so they may forget their troubles whilst in the midst of a crafting activity. Relaxation and meditative moods often follow.

Craft Fair

As creative abilities do not necessarily deteriorate, elder people can benefit from doing art to increase stimulation and creativity. Art, craft, music and other creative activities can affect individuals by inducing both psychological and physiological healing.


Massage

Massage therapy for seniors can be an effective, non-invasive way to help alleviate some of the symptoms of many age-related conditions, especially when used to compliment traditional medical services. With regular massage, seniors can experience an improved quality of life, increased energy levels and feel younger and healthier overall.


Physical Activities According to a NHS study findings, 61% of people who take part in physical activities experience functional improvement, with most moving from low to moderate functioning. Our sessions of seated exercises helps improve the physical and mental wellbeing of elderly people in just couple of months. Indeed, improved mobility helps older people live more independent lives.
