WE NEED YOU!!!
. . . to help set up and maintain a new project called ‘Treasured Memories’ starting in March. The aim of the project is to create a social group for isolated older residents in Barking and Dagenham to come together, socialise, share their life experiences and learn new skills.
The projects initial stage is to give attendees renewed self-confidence, a platform to meet new people and re-connect with the community in a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The focus of the project will be around each attendee creating their own American style scrapbook about their life which they will contribute to each week through six themed workshops alongside life skills to help increase their confidence.
Through the themes of each workshop we hope to provoke memories from the past as a discussion point to build rapport within the group and identify shared values and interests and to create a self-sustaining social group to continue to meet and grow with the help of volunteers.
Volunteers must be available Wednesdays 2pm-5pm.
