Type of initiative funded: Group Activity


Funding awarded: £10000


Project description:

We aim to offer a programme of a weekly afternoon sessions of activities, negotiated and shaped by older people and their carers that may include eg walking, swimming, gardening, yoga, crafts, cinema, board games, ballroom dancing and slow cooker and microwave cooking. Our programme would be regularly reviewed and evaluated by our participants. We already offer a Men's Group on a Friday afternoon 12 noon to 2pm that new participants would be welcome to join. We would require a co-ordinator and facilitator for these activities and where appropriate sessional tutors. We have costed these activities and our costs would be annually.
