Over the last 6 months Life links have delivered a number of workshops to both the Belgrave and Thurncourt Age UK – Anything goes groups. These workshops explored topics such as stress management, an introduction to Grounding/Mindfulness, confidence building and more. As these particular groups are attended by older people that are potentially socially isolated, Life links were delighted for the opportunity to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing to a less accessible audience.
Recovery worker Shante says:
“Both groups were a pleasure to present to and engaged well with the hands on activities. The bubble wrap popping in particular went down a treat and was a great way of demonstrating how we can easily incorporate mindfulness techniques into our everyday lives to support our wellbeing.”
Thank you to Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland for inviting us to engage with your groups.
