Special thanks to Groundwork's One Stop Carriers for Causes scheme
Through support from the One Stop Carriers for Causes scheme, Age UK Portsmouth was able to purchase reminiscence materials for activities that will lift our older people's spirits and increase their wellbeing.
We will be conducting reminiscence sessions to help older people retain long-term memory, reduce social isolation and improve their well-being.
