Community Outreach Project Launches to Provide Lifeline During COVID-19

A new project has launched in Tameside to provide a vital lifeline for older and vulnerable people during COVID-19.

‘Armchair Adventures’ will see people come together through radio and digital technology to take part in creative arts activities.

The project will involve regular participatory music and drama workshops with vulnerable people using radio, telephone, podcast, and video messaging. Each group of participants will benefit from a weekly workshop specifically designed for their needs and abilities and people will make music, write stories and create drama together.

Set up by community interest company Made By Mortals, ‘Armchair Adventures’ will raise spirits, ensure people stay connected and in doing so improve their health and wellbeing during these difficult times.

Paul Hine, Director of Made By Mortals said: “Our work is all about human connection and creativity. We know how vital this work is for the mental health and wellbeing of our participants so we wanted to create something which would support them and bring them together during this difficult time.

“People will sing from their balconies, dance on their patios, and share stories with each other that set imaginations wild and free!

“Together, we’ll help ensure social distancing doesn’t lead to social isolation. Let the Armchair Adventures begin.”

Made By Mortals needs your help to fund the equipment and staff required to beam fun and creativity into people’s homes.

100% of the money raised will go directly towards this project. For further information or to donate to the project, visit:
