"Now other groups that we feed into are changing the way they work with people over 50 with disabilities, so the project is having a much wider impact.”

“There were some people over 50 with disabilities who were going to day centres and being expected to do the same things as the younger people.

Their needs weren’t being met and nobody was talking to them about it. A lot of the time, this group hasn’t had the chance to choose the activities they want to do but this project gives them this opportunity.

We loved the sewing and crafts, and enjoyed having someone teach us about Story Massage.

“Coming to this project has helped me to find ways to calm down during thunderstorms so I don’t get really stressed like I used to.” - Carol - resident 

We’ve had sessions in our own place and we’ve also gone out to other over 50’s groups to teach them.

Now other groups that we feed into are changing the way they work with people over 50 with disabilities, so the project is having a much wider impact.”
