Home Is Where The Activity Is.

Updated: Jun 12, 2020

The health and well-being of our customers has been upper most in our minds during these extraordinary times and even with minor easing to the lockdown, we are all being urged to remain at home and stay safe. Keeping ourselves busy is key to aiding our mental health and that’s why Rooftop’s Health and Well-Being Team and Rooftop’s Communications Team have put together an activity booklet.

It contains 56 pages of puzzles, information, colouring, recipes, exercises and activity ideas to stay occupied at home. It’s particularly aimed at our more vulnerable customers, who may have limited resources or access to technology.

But it covers all age groups from young to old, from families to those living alone and many volunteers have been distributing copies of the book to our Old People’s Schemes, Young Persons Schemes and people in our general housing stock.

We’ve already had great and positive feedback from people who have started to keep themselves entertained with the activity book, such as our resident from Lydney YPS pictured here.

The whole project was only possible with the support of many organisations, who provided information, grants or both. Rooftop is extremely grateful to those who helped us and as always, we are delighted to be able to work in partnerships.

Have a look for yourself, there's a digital copy of the activity booklet here;
