The Pandemic

Since autumn 2020 we have been heavily focussing on supporting people to improve their health and wellbeing.

The Covid-19 lockdowns took a particularly heavy toll on people with learning and health disabilities, as well as on a huge number of young people aged between 15 and 24 years old, whose mental health and life experiences suffered hugely from the pandemic. They felt more lonely and isolated than ever before, anxiety levels soared and resilience and confidence levels massively declined.

Stable Foundations looks to support people to not just survive but thrive, through:
 

  1. Connecting with other people

  2. Being physically active

  3. Learning new skills

  4. Giving to others

  5. Paying attention to the present (mindfulness).
