My Generation is a free eight week programme for older people which aims to improve wellbeing, build resilience and reduce isolation and loneliness.
We piloted the programme in four areas across Wales and found that:
• 79% of participants experienced an increase in their wellbeing. 78% continues to experience improved wellbeing three months after the end of the course.
• 69% of participants increased their social connections. This increased to 74% at the three month follow up.
• 63% improved their coping skills and felt more able to solve problems. This rose to 68% at the three month follow up.
In 2018, My Generation ran in every local health board area in Wales.
