Oxford Turtle Song

Musical project Turtle Song is starting a new group in ‪Oxford‬ in January, and they are currently looking for people who would like to join.


This is a national project for people with Alzheimer’s and all forms of dementia (and their companions), working together with professional musicians and music students to write your own songs, enjoy singing them together, record them, and give a performance to family and friends.

 

For further information and to express an interest please contact Turtle Key Arts on 020 8964 5060 or email charlotte@turtlekeyarts.org.uk.

 

 


 

 

No one should have no one

Across Oxfordshire, thousands of older people will be spending this Christmas alone. That's why the Oxford Mail have launched their Lonely this Christmas campaign; supporting Age UK Oxfordshire to be there for people who are lonely and isolated - at this time and all through the year.

 

Across the UK, more than a million older people say they go for over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member. Contrary to what many people think, loneliness is not a normal part of ageing, and it not only makes life miserable, it can have a serious impact on your physical and mental health too.

 

Please support our campaign - donate or volunteer today to help change the lives of lonely older people in Oxfordshire.

The Council has brought forward options for savings and efficiencies that will contribute £23million to the £50million of spending reductions required for the Council to balance its budget.
