Health & Wellbeing

We’d like to think that all of our activities improve people’s wellbeing, by bringing them together for fun and friendship. However, we do offer various groups that are particularly focused on health and wellbeing, from walking and pilates to gardening together.

We work hard to ensure that everyone who wants to join in can, by offering support into activities, ranging from an initial home visit to those referred to us, to accompanying someone into an activity for the first time if they’re anxious about starting something new. Along with being open to everyone, we also work with GPs and other professionals who do social prescribing – this just means linking people into community activities that can improve their wellbeing, and is something T&T has been doing for many years!

You can drop-in to any of these groups yourself, but if you would like some support, or know someone else who might benefit from some, please get in touch with johnhopkins@timeandtalents.org.uk. We also take referrals from social services, local GPs and a range of other community and health professionals.

Due to the coronavirus crisis, both of Time & Talents’ venues are closed. However, our staff are still very much at work whilst working remotely. We are in regular telephone contact with hundreds of local people who usually come to T&T activities/groups, and are responding to urgent need wherever we can with our amazing existing volunteer team.

We’ve also been delighted at the volume of new volunteering applications we’re getting and we welcome more to apply here:

Staff are working as fast as they can to process these applications and then make hundreds of phone befriending matches, to keep our community connected and battle the isolation that this crisis is creating for many of us. Please visit our website News page for updates and call the team on 020 7231 7845 if you need us.

Best wishes
