Group activities such as listening to period music and handling authentic uniforms or military items from our collections, will help participants by triggering memories and encouraging interaction. The scheme will also help to combat the loneliness many elderly people and particularly veterans can feel.
We are aiming for an initial pilot project of 6 consecutive weeks with a bid to the local Civilian Military Partnership Forum for funding in order to roll it out county wide. This is an exciting project which has the potential to provide a valuable service not currently available elsewhere
