Just one week after the general election, Confed17 brings together health and social care leaders to hear the detail behind the new government's plans for the NHS, and to debate what it means in practice.
Encourage Activity is a Social Enterprise dedicated to improving the lives of people living in a care environment.
The business initially provided hourly activity sessions to older people living in a care home or sheltered housing scheme, using competitive, game based activities to encourage older people to be more active.
Starting in Worcestershire, Encourage Activity quickly grew to provide sessions to over 50 venues across the area on a regular basis, making activity part of a daily routine for many older people.
Encourage Activity has now expanded to offering a training course that teaches care staff how to provide fun and engaging activities to their residents in a safe and friendly environment. Training takes place within the care venue so that delegates have the opportunity to learn new skills in a familiar environment.
The training has been developed in conjunction with Age UK and is accredited by The Open College Network. In addition to providing activity sessions and training to the care sector, Encourage Activity also work with individuals who want to set up their own groups in local town and village halls for their community.
