Bringing people together to be able to communicate online through video conferencing so they feel less isolated. In recent times due to covid a lot of elderly people have become very withdrawn and lonely because of not being able to see or speak with family and friends, our project will try to bring them closer virtually so they feel a sense of belonging and will ease them back into being able to socialise, something which a lot of people have missed out on and have become very isolated. We will also try to bring different communities together so they can speak to each other in their own languages and share stories, ideas and their experiences. we will try to share current events with them so they know what is going on around them and will feel more in touch with their communities.

What we'll deliver:

  • change in wellbeing
  • improvement in mental health of elderly
  • an increase of interactivity between the participants bringing about more positivity

Why it's a great idea:

Our project will bring people closer, those that have been affected through covid or other illness and therefore are unable to see people will now be able to communicate via video conferencing and other such methods in an attempt to bring communities together, this will also help them to share their problems and find solutions between each other and discuss things that have or are affecting them in the day to day lives. it could be sharing a recipe or gardening tips, or perhaps the latest current affairs that are happening, these discussions and meetings will eliminate mental health problems faced by the elderly due to being mentally inactive.

Steps to get it done:

  • Computer equipment and a space
  • Youtube channel live sessions and closed zoom meetings with volunteers and peers
  • networking over the weekends
