Hi Melinda,
I work in a community based organisation. I hold 'Health Forums' every now and then and have a few guest speakers come in on the day. Our speakers are all health related - eg Diabetes, continence, falls prevention, nutrition etc Hope this helps!

Hi Tyler,

Have you tried focussing on the 'prize' aspect of activities? Like bingo/ trivia and winner gets a prize. who doesn't love winning things!?! I ve found armchair travel to be popular too. Its Bastille day this week so our group is 'travelling' to France. We will be eating croissants and cheese and baguettes, listening to French music and having French trivia with prizes. Good Luck!

Hi Kaitlyn,

I have found men can be very hard to engage in group activities. I work in community aged care and have found that outings are the only way to get them involved. I have a 'mens group run by men' approach. The male group leaders have a way of encouraging participants into coming along and once they see what its all about they are keen to keep coming back. I think people have preconceived ideas on what group activities are. Good Luck!!

Hi Megan,
Im in the same kind of situation. I work in community aged care so dont have a 'captured audience' so to speak. I have an activity program that has to appeal to people enough that hey want to pay to attend. If you like you can email me at [email protected] - it would be great to have someone to bounce ideas off of.
