CAMEO is a pilot project for people who have found themselves single & isolated due to the death or separation of a partner.
CAMEO consists of a series of workshops designed to equip participants with the practical skills their partner carried out in their relationship, and which they now need to do in order to live independently. It’s also a chance for people that may feel isolated to socialise and have a good time. CAMEO increases confidence and self-esteem thereby improving quality of life. So far there has been a variety of workshops from car mechanics, to DIY in the home.
The project enables each individual to feel they can make a positive contribution to their community through volunteering and access to further training.
Our first group started in November 2011 and has proved a huge success and we have two new groups starting in January 2012—
