We pride ourselves on the holistic programme of activity and initiatives we provide for our older residents living within the Triax NRA and beyond.
We are well established within the target area and have developed a grassroots approach to tackle loneliness and isolation, by engaging and working with residents to provide a pathway to improved mental health and well-being. This approach ensures BBHF remains relevant and provides an impactful and beneficial programme for older residents.
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Shed and She Programme of Services in July 2023. Everyone is welcome to come down and learn a new skill or just pop in for a cuppa and chat! Our new services will include: woodwork, wood turning, garden furniture, jewellery making, upcycling, upholstery, picture framing and more! All our programmes will be announced in our What's On section of the website, our social media sites and our newsletter.
Our small social cafes are an ideal way to introduce new participants to new activities in a safe and secure environment and with the support of our volunteers. Participants come together for a cuppa and chat and identify activities together that they would like to undertake, for example, arts and crafts, light exercises, meditation, reminiscence, information and advice.
This weekly club brings together older people through a range of activities and events including welfare rights, physical activity, health promotion activities, arts/crafts cooking demonstrations, bus trips and informational sessions. It takes a holistic approach to health that aims to promote social inclusion, reduce isolation and provide practical advice and support to the most vulnerable in the community.
