Project Manager, Red Cafe Community Project | Musical Memories Choir | Forget Me Not
Hi I am Helen Hunter, I am based in Swansea South Wales. My background and training is social work and community development. In 2001 a group of us created Red Cafe Community Project with aim aim to bring people together across the city. Over the last 20 years we have worked with our community and volunteers with a vision developing a number of strands of work focusing on families, young people, asylum seekers, prisoners, people experiencing food poverty older people and people living with dementia and carers. In this field we have been running weekly community drop in cafe style social events, specialist dementia day service provision in partnership with our local day centre and the Musical Memories Choir meeting twice a week in the community and also running regular choir sessions in local care homes, day centres, dementia specialist hospital wards and community groups. I am keen to connect with others to share learning, ideas and vision about how we continue with the aim of connecting people whilst living alongside COVID 19.
