Trinity Fold Care Home has been an active partner in VAC’s Molly and Bill pilot that began in January 2017. Since then, Molly and Bill has helped provide regular creative activities and helped facilitate events for Trinity Fold Care Home to get involved with including an intergenerational project at Bankfield Museum.
The Molly and Bill pilot has been a huge success with the development of a programme of creative activities across 6 Calderdale care settings. The activities have ranged from arts and crafts, cooking and gardening to circle dance, memory making and music therapy. Volunteers from across Calderdale have given their time and skills to deliver activities and spend quality time with residents. Going forward, the project is building on this approach and has been commissioned to work with care settings and communities in the Upper Valley to bring the creativity into care in a sustainable, supportive way.
If you are a member of a community group in the Upper Valley or are interested in becoming a Molly and Bill volunteer and sharing your talents with residents get in touch and together we can make the links.
