Listening Ears in partnership with the NHS Greenwich, has established a community health and well-being project on the Flowers Estate in Abbey Wood. Tagged Feel Good Fridays, it features various activities that are run by Listening Ears volunteers in conjunction with local residents and other service providers including NHS Greenwich, Age Concern, and Volunteer Centre Greenwich. It features a range of activities designed to increase community cohesion and reduce isolation. These include drop in sessions, weekly physical activity sessions, monthly pamper days.
From time to time, we organise day trips within the UK. Previous destinations have included Deal, Brighton Beach, Broadstairs, Herne Bay and events. The trip usually accommodates about 50-60 people travelling on a hired coach. The trips are usually subsided with reasonable fees. We usually spend the afternoon at the location giving everyone time to explore the area, local museums, restaurants before heading back in the late evenings.
