Y’s Group

Social isolation can have an enormous impact on people‚Äôs health and wellbeing including: high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, and even death.

We have established a community group (the Y’s Group) aimed at reducing social isolation and loneliness for senior residents aged 65+.

Meeting weekly, the group take part in activities that enable them to improve both their mental and physical health. Activities include arts, crafts, sport and heritage and the residents are accompanied by several students from Discovery College to help develop intergenerational links.

Cost of Living Workshops

We would like to deliver free cost of living workshops within a variety of Plymouth organisations (e.g. wellbeing hubs and CICs) for 4 weeks in order to support the community through the cost of living crisis and to help them to manage their wellbeing. The workshops will embed practical skills to help make your money go further, include stress and emotion management techniques, develop a growth mindset, embed simple tips for all and provide a safe space to talk, explore healthy eating on a budget, provide food vouchers to the community and look at how we can develop financial resilience.
