Older Person’s Month Celebrations

This month is Older Person’s Month! To celebrate, our Chain Reaction team has been hosting various events, such as ‘Painting for Fun’ and afternoon tea, to give the people they support a much-appreciated wellbeing boost.

This includes one-to-one personalised support and connecting people to their community, to others, and to a network of natural support.
