A 12 month ‘Awards for All’ project engaging older south Asian heritage ladies

The participants are mainly Pakistani Punjabi, Kashmiri and Bengali background, experiencing loneliness, isolation and often mental distress.

We are working with older ladies to make them feel comfortable. Many of the ladies cannot communicate in English and that makes it difficult for them to access mainstream services. Some of the beneficiaries even have the responsibility of caring for their elderly spouse.

Our Project Live Well has put together the following package of activities for beneficiaries:

Get Together – Project provided comfortable space 3 days a week south Asian elderly women to come and spend time with others in safe and friendly environment.  Enjoy a chat and some refreshments, share their daily life issues, read newspapers and generally find out what is happening around their neighbourhood.

Project offers simple Art & Craft, Drawing and painting, card making sessions, story telling, Information and advice and gentle walks. There have been local outings and trips enjoyed by all.
