Supporting older people and carers across Dorset by providing a range of community groups, clubs and activities.
PramaLife works in Bournemouth, Christchurch, East Dorset and Poole offering a wide range of activities and services which look to directly tackle social isolation and lead to increased personal independence, and help people enjoy life as they age.
Our aim is to see Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and Dorset recognised by the World Health Organisation as an "Age Friendly Community".
Ageing is something that everyone does. We want it to be an enjoyable experience, where people retain their independence, self-worth and dignity. In achieving this, our Pramalife services are influenced by local older
people and carers, then delivered and monitored with their involvement.
Prama volunteering is a particularly rewarding experience. If you could spare us a little time - just a couple of hours a week or even a day now and again, that would really make a difference.

"I love coming here, I was really nervous the first time to come on my own but everyone welcomed me, the group leader was really helpful and introduced me to people who have now become friends I talk to away from the group. I love playing bingo, I think everyone should try going to a group like this, I feel a lot less lonely these days

"Knit and natter - says it on the tin!
None of us take it too seriously, its just a chance for us to chat about whats going on in our lives, or on TV while we are creative.
Its good for your mental health, and I can tell my family that I've been out when they call to check on me "
