From time to time we offer programmes of activities that aim to improve mental health, promote wellbeing or offer opportunities to learn something new. To receive regular updates about any upcoming activities please join our Mailing List
Our Current Projects
In 2022 we actively participated in a local initiative called Discover Digital. Although funding for this project has ended we are continuing to offer support to our members who want to learn digital skills and make the best use of the internet. You can find out more on our Discover Digital Page
BJF Tea and Tech Drop-in
As part of our ongoing commitment to the legacy of Discover Digital we are working in partnership with The Beth Johnson Foundation to offer our members access to a “Tea and Tech Drop-in”. You can get support from BJF Staff and volunteers to learn basic digital skills including setting up or using your own devices. This drop-in is an LGBT+ friendly space but it is also open to all older people.

Recent Past Projects
Reclaim Project – 2022
When lockdown ended we were able to return to an in person activity. Reclaim explored the transformational process of reconstituting old clay to make something new. We were heavily influenced by the emerging conflict in Ukraine and made sunflowers as a symbol of hope. Yellow and blue are the colours of Ukraine and sunflowers are part of the nation’s national identity.
Mind Matters Project – 2021
This short video shows some of the items crafted in the many activities offered through Mind Matters in 2021. Most of this activity took place online via Zoom due to the Covid lockdowns.
