Living With Change – Combating loss of identity in care

Older person living in careTacking loneliness,  isolation and loss of identity caused by changes in later life.

The Living With Change project will connect people and families, within or entering the care system to their peers through life stories, experiences and interests shared online and via printed newsletters.

The information that is shared can be used directly, and by family, friends or carers to help older people discover new friendships and stay in touch with old friends throughout the different stages of care they receive.

This project aims to directly combat loss of identity caused through change and directly tackles isolation and loneliness. This project is due to run until late 2015.


Free to Succeed – 1000 chances for young people

In a fair society everybody has the right to succeed. Ability, effort and ambition should count, not the school you went to, your parent’s jobs, who you know or where you live. No one should be prevented from fulfilling their potential by the circumstances of their birth.

We are providing 1000 young people with support they wouldn’t typically have access to, to help them achieve goals, overcome obstacles, learn new skills, find new opportunities and make new helpful connections outside their current social circle.

Open Up Arts – (Creative opportunities in the arts)

Arts and culture projectAdd My Support’s arts and culture project  supports young people interested in art, drama, dance and music.

The Opening Up Arts project helps young people achieve their goals, learn new skills by creating new connections, asking questions, finding mentors and sponsors to turn their artistic projects, ideas and aims into reality.

Project participants can request professional and peer support to help them achieve their personal fitness goals or overcome health obstacles that prevent them from being more active.

healthnetworksDo you know what signs you should be looking out for?

Early diagnosis is a universal factor in tackling cancer and other health issues. Early detection improves your chances of surviving and can also make the treatments considerably gentler and bring less side effects.

This project is aiming to raise awareness of health symptoms and common safety issues to help people recognise them early.

Working with charity and private partners the Spot The Signs project is coordinating existing and new symptom and safety awareness campaigns.  Organisations can contribute their own campaigns to be promoted through this project.


EnviroAct – (Environmental action and rewards)

Community walk in unspoilt hillsideEnvironmental issues are a regular part of every day news and life.  The impact of global warming, increased housing needs,  flood risk, periods of drought and other extreme conditions leave many people and communities facing serious long term environmental challenges.

EnviroAct empowers people to take action to protect the environment, green spaces and nature.
