Lockdown Jam Buddies – By Matt

Matthew, a Jam Buddy member tell us about how they are connecting on Zoom during Coronavirus Lockdown

Jam Buddies is a music group that usually takes place every week and is led by The Turning tides Project

Jam Buddies is where we play musical instruments and sing to music 

We meet in Totnes on Thursdays evenings . 

Because of COVID19 we now have to use Zoom to connect. 

 It is good because we get to see people’s faces without contact.  

It makes me happy that we can still do this. 

Songs we are doing at the moment are Lean on me, Che che cula  

and Tainted Love.  

I have played the Saxaphone, African drums and Ukulele .  

My favorite instrument is the African drums because they have a smooth beat. 

How does Jam Buddies and music make me feel?  

Jam Buddies makes me feel that I’m not alone and it makes me happy and calm. 

Music makes me feel calm and chillaxed and most importantly makes me feel happy. 

It is good for you because you can make new friends and you can play musical instruments you haven’t played before  

Future and Jam Buddies? 

I would like to meet my friends again and play more music and sing to songs and to go back to Jam buddies once this coronavirus has stopped.

Hello and welcome!

Introducing Lifeworks’ new website and charity look. We hope you like it. Fresh feel but same fantastic team and services.

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
