Is Anybody There?

Illustration for Is Anybody there

Hello. Are you 55 and beyond, someone who has seen a great deal of life but nothing quite like this, and find yourself with a bit of time on your hands? If so, we do hope you will join us as we try to make some sense of things.

Whether you’re in lockdown alone, or packed in like sardines, we want to hear about your experience and capture something of these strange times so that we can understand it a little better when it is all over.

We’d like to send messages to your phone asking you to take a moment to reflect or to do a simple task. They will be small things that you can do by yourself at any time of the night or day. We’ll send about two a week and of course, you’ll be able to tell us to stop anytime you want.

Then, when this is over, we’ll find a way to share what we’ve all been up to. To see who else out there has been doing what you have been doing.

Want to know more or sign up?

If you want to know a little more or are just ready to jump in and see what happens next, then please text us on 07537 438444 with the simple message I AM READY sometime over the next few days. We will be in touch.
