PSALM [Project for Seniors and Lifelong Ministry]

PSALM was formed to address the gap in provision for older people in Greater London. It has since successfully found a place for itself running workshops and seminars for members and providing consultancy for outside groups interested in extending their provision. Subjects cover a wide range of the issues research tells us concern people as they get older; these include Dementia, Strokes, Loneliness, Approaching Dying, Downsizing in Later Life, as well as some lighter sessions which allow members to meet each other informally.

PSALM works with churches and agencies in London that wish to explore the effects of growing older by providing courses which aim to focus on the positive as well as the negative aspects so that people can encounter the challenges and opportunities associated with ageing with confidence and creativity. At a time when the population is ageing and research is demonstrating the positive contribution affirming the experiences and value of our older people can bring, congregations and community groups need help in releasing the potential of the over 60s.
