As a result of COVID-19, we’ve had to dramatically rethink the way we deliver our services for the physical and mental health and wellbeing of our residents, especially the more vulnerable among us.
Our team has been working hard and coming up with new initiatives in order to try and to find ways for residents to feel like they are still part of their community, whilst being able to stay safe at home when necessary.
Residents can select from four activities including;
- Baking – learn to bake a basic biscuit in week one, and by week twelve they can make and decorate a large chocolate cake;
- Crocheting – make small elements of a large blanket each week and by the twelfth week you will have completed a large rainbow blanket;
- Gardening – From planting a hanging basket to creating a windowsill herb garden, the gardening pack is suitable for all, even those living in flats!; and
- Puzzles – from puzzle books to domino sets, we teach participants how to play one player games that they can complete at home on their own.
Every week volunteers deliver the activity packs to participants’ homes which include everything that they need for their chosen activity. Compass Support will then connect people who are participating in the same activity as each other so they can share their experiences and even form new friendships.
