Supporting your wellbeing

Two people in white stretching

Our residents get to experience lots of free and subsidised fun activities. Some of these are aimed at increasing physical wellbeing, such as exercise classes for children and adults, like Friday Night Project football club, and Boogie Bounce which uses trampolines, music and lights to keep fit. We also provide activities to support mental wellbeing, such as our popular Summer Fun programme which helps you meet new people as well as with child care over the school holidays! To find out more about all of these opportunities, register for IMPACT.

Please bear in mind that our activities are currently affected by the pandemic, but we are looking at ways we can bring them back in a Covid Safe way. 

We support all our residents whether they are young or old. We do a lot to combat social isolation, and twice a year put on fun events at each of our Independent Living schemes. These are always well received, and have ranged from carol singing, fireworks, tea parties and even mobile petting zoos! Most of our schemes have communal lounges where regular coffee mornings are held to encourage residents to meet and get to know each other.

Our Welfare team is available to provide support to make sure you’re getting all the benefits you’re entitled to, help with budgeting, and put you in touch with support from external specialist agencies.

In partnership with Bucks Fire and AVDC, we run a Hoarding Support Group which is open to all, and provides support for anyone dealing with hoarding disorder, whether that’s themselves or someone close to them.

We can also help residents set up their own support or community group. For example, we have provided one of our residents with a meeting room for her support group, which provides a safe space for friends and families of addicts to talk and share experiences.
