Alive is the UK’s leading charity enriching the lives of older people in care and training their carers.
Alive Clubs are a positive way of supporting those living in a care home and older people living in care to come together and enjoy activity and friendship.
Alive provides Training and Coaching to all care staff who are working in the care sector. Our courses are designed to empower, support and equip carers, whatever capacity they are in.
Alive has a range of volunteering opportunities from volunteering in care homes, community gardens or supporting our office staff.
We’d like to announce the exciting news that Growing Support has merged with Alive. Since 2014 Growing Support has specialised in social and therapeutic gardening and, like Alive, works with older people in care. By joining forces through this merger, Alive and Growing Support combine years of expertise, as well as unique and complementary approaches to improving later life for older people in care.
As Alive moves into providing services for the community as well as care homes, we have a number of community gardens supporting people living with dementia regardless of where they are living.
