Get There Together

Who: Anyone aged 18+

Where: Wales

When: Flexible

Contacts: Eleri Cruchley-Jones

Why are we doing this project?

People living with dementia, their family, and members of other vulnerable groups have expressed how fearful they feel about going back out into the community due to the impact of Covid-19. People have expressed feelings of worry and fear about accessing healthcare services as well as community shops and support groups. Furthermore, people have reported that they have lost skills and confidence during their time shielding or in isolation.

What do we want to achieve?

The project aims to encourage citizens across the communities of Wales to connect, build awareness, and empower inclusion and reduce isolation.

To encourage people to return to places that they previously used on a regular basis by giving them an idea of what to expect and the opportunity to rehearse beforehand, practice skills, and lessening anxiety.

What are we aiming to do?

Participate and support in the development of a national recourse ‘Get There Together’. This resource will capture digital stories of locally identified priority areas, settings, venues, and places of interest. The resource will demonstrate through the making of focused digital stories on these particular safety measures that are being supported in the community.

The resource will be hosted on a website with the video-audio (clips) stored on YouTube.

The resource will also have a function for the person to print off hard copies of information if the digital resource is not appropriate or transferable.

The resource will be developed to be user friendly – simple and clear in its information.
