Deriving its name from the former Bagnall Centre for Integrated Healthcare in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, substance abuse charity The Oasis Partnership has been temporarily gifted the centre, and subsequently officiated a project that aims to reach out to vulnerable members of the community to provide emotional and physical support.
As part of the project, Oasis has re-designed the Bagnall Centre’s 6,000 sq. ft space to offer visitors a number of rooms and facilities that prescribe a holistic programme of activities and engagement specific to the community’s older generation.
B&M Care’s Engagement Lead Co-ordinator Margaret Daniels (pictured above) visited The Bagnall Project to commemorate the new partnership, commenting: “Improving an individual’s health and wellbeing is our utmost priority at B&M Care, so when The Bagnall Project reached out, it was instinctive for us to form a partnership.”
She continued: “What Oasis has done to the Bagnall Centre is phenomenal – and has since accelerated their mission in making a difference to the lives of older people in Chesham.”
In addition to a wide range of themed projects – from music and IT, to a state-of-the-art ‘Vaulted Room’ for physical activity – The Bagnall Project plans to offer specialistcourses aimed at improving wellbeing. So far, the project has started ‘Mindfulness Monday’ and ‘Transformation Tuesday’ on Monday and Tuesday respectively every week.
