COVID – 19 Self Isolation

We are aware of the challenge facing those who have to self-isolate for 12 weeks and we are working with community group leaders to offer alternative forms of connecting. In the meantime, here are some ideas. 

Alternative activities 

  • Art groups are posting kits out to their members to try things at home. 
  • Shared meal groups are organising deliveries. 
  • Social groups are organising phone trees  and calling round when they would usually meet up to ensure people have regular verbal contact. Sometimes they are agreeing what they will talk about each week, e.g. shared film or book.
  • The Bevy has put together a listings page of things to do at home featuring cultural and wellbeing activities 
  • Brighton Fringe Online. Throughout May watch Brighton Fringe 2020 Events online including cabaret & variety, dance, comedy, exhibitions, spoken word, music and theatre.
