Bright Copper Kettles

Inspiration and Information for Activity Coordinators and Carers of Older People, including those with dementia.

by Caroline J Benham in

We did it
On 12th August 2016 we successfully raised £340 with 13 supporters in 120 days

www.brightcopperkettles.co.uk provides 'Inspiration and Information for Activity Coordinators and Carers of Older People, including those with dementia.'

Research has shown that engagement in activities such as Art, Music, Poetry, Reminiscence and Exercise can all help to improve the lives of older people.  Biopsychosocial interventions and Active Daily Living activities have proven helpful for people with dementia. 4ec9ad36a6d903955a7ef27cef8cd7c2.jpg

The Activity Coordinator can get bogged down with research, paperwork and fundraising in their efforts to provide the best activities.  Often finding that they have very little time remaining to engage in the activities with residents.

www.brightcopperkettles.co.uk aims to cut down the paperwork by providing one place to source all the information the Activity Coordinator needs.

Calendar based activities are easily sourced through the Let's plan ahead page. Activity Coordinators can click on the 'Month' buttons to find information about special dates.  Links to relevant websites are included here.  'Members Only' buttons lead to extra pages with more inspiration for calendar themed events and activities.  The addition of 'Let's plan themed activities' will include ideas for more person-centred activities which can be adapted for groups and individuals based on Life Stories collected by the Activity Coordinator and their colleagues.034508954621ae469e78690a1c32eade.png

The website has received some wonderful support from people working in the care industry.  We have received articles for the blog page from Activity Providers, Carers, Product Suppliers, DementiaTrainers, App Developers and Writers, as well as Campaigners and People Living with a Dementia Diagnosis.  Their blogs have been well received and through them we are a UK Blog Awards Finalist 2016.

Activity Coordinators have been supportive of the website as well as each other.  The Facebook page 'Activity Coordinators Chat Page' has 1.6k. 1ead8d28b7b10c0f3f45ce5cde2d1d8a.png

The future costs of running the website will be met through Membership sales, sponsorship and advertising in the Business Directory.

Bright Copper Kettles also has the potential to support anyone in the Private or Public Sector working towards Engagement and Inclusivity.  For example; Museums, Libraries, Theatres and Public Attractions.

In order to continue with the research and application to complete the website I am asking for pledges.  Please support me to make this project possible by voting and sharing this pitch.
