Residents engage with many activities including volunteering opportunities to not only help others but work towards improving levels of confidence, self esteem and work on reducing levels of isolation. Many of the residents have commented on the level of comradery which helps them to make new friendships and acknowledge that each person is there for the same reason and this in turn creates a positive support network.
