Older people 65+

We support older people in Bognor, Chichester, Lancing, Southwick and surrounding areas

Many people experience social isolation and this impacts their mental health and well-being. We help people over 65 in Bognor, Chichester, Lancing, Southwick and surrounding areas who are feeling low, have depression, anxiety or other mental health needs, especially if they are isolated.

The team, which includes our amazing volunteers, can help you with:

  • In person one-to-one support
  • Support on the phone or online
  • Social activities – in person and online – such as arts and crafts, gentle walks and picnics, quizzes, bingo and other games
  • Mindfulness and mental well-being sessions.

In Bognor, we also run a special activity group, called 'Take a break together', aimed at carers and those they care for.

Our experienced service manager, Jo Bulis, is supported by a co-ordinator and team of trained volunteers and mental health workers.

Our social meetings are an opportunity to chat with others in a friendly and relaxed environment.

All our different sessions, whether focusing on creativity, conversation, outdoor activities, physical or mental well-being, aim to reduce isolation, increase confidence and encourage independence.

If you, or someone you know, could benefit from our older people's support, please call us on 07495 077341 or 07932 784979. Or email cim@westsussexmind.org.
