Claremont Project

Claremont is an award-winning charity that delivers an aspirational and creative programme of opportunities for marginalised older people experiencing loneliness and poor mental health. Its programme includes a schedule of thirty-six weekly classes ranging from art therapy, psychotherapy groups and one-to-one psychotherapy, to crafts, tai chi, dance, keep fit, and creative writing. We all want to feel that we matter and that we're not objects or statistics. Claremont offers a friendly community, which strives for real community and real friendships supporting older people who are experiencing all kinds of difficulties to join it, to make friends, strengthen their connections, and feel better about themselves.

The Grocers' Charity award funded the setup and launch of five new male-oriented activities: a chicken-keeping project, vinyl record club, darts club, men's only fitness, and a men's rock choir.
