1 May | Time To Learn – Working in small Groups to help reduce social isolation

/, Events, Health & Care, MailChimp, Older People/1 May | Time To Learn – Working in small Groups to help reduce social isolation
1 May,  2.00pm to 4.00pm at Bramley Community Centre 
Some Time to Shine projects had identified it was difficult to take socially isolated older people and introduce them straight into pre-existing large groups, even with staff support, as it requires a lot of confidence to join these groups.
They have been trying setting up small, very local groups to help people make local connections and take the next step to a larger group or activity with a friendly face.
If you would like to learn more about this, how it works well and how to navigate the pitfalls please book on the Time to Learn workshop at Bramley Elderly Action on May 1st.
If you already know lots about this then join us to share your knowledge.
This is open to staff and volunteers of any organisations who work with older people, it is not restricted to organisations with Time to Shine funding, so feel free to pass this on to colleagues who you think might be interested.
please book on Eventbrite
Time to Learn events are about sharing knowledge, they are not courses led by experts, we hope everyone will come with a mission to share their own expertise.
