STEP aims to tackle social isolation amongst older adults aged 65 plus by using an action learning process in a group work setting. Over the summer, it is intended to focus the Programme on people who live within Sheltered Housing Complexes. We also run these groups for adults. Among the modules available are alcohol use, loss and change, drug use, wellbeing, chronic health conditions and sexual health.
If you know anyone that would be suitable for the programme, or have any questions then please get in touch.
