In 2020, the programmes expanded to work with those in the local community. The programme now offers well-being and arts & crafts sessions for people in the community with mental health issues, veterans, carers, the socially-isolated and those with onset dementia.

We also work with Memory Cafes/Clubs and other specialist groups in the community.
