More info about Wishing Washing Line™ West: 

Wishing Washing Line™ West is an NHS-funded project delivered by Alive, an award-winning charity dedicated to improving the lives of older people and their carers.  

The idea behind Wishing Washing Line™ West is simple: residents of care homes tell us a wish they have, and we connect volunteers from the local community to fulfill them. Volunteers could be individuals, families, organisations or businesses. 

Wishes wary widely, from wanting to play a game of bingo to wanting to speak French to wanting to go on a trip to the beach. See our social media @wwlw to stay up to date on wishes.


Why is this project important? 

It has been an incredibly difficult two and a half years for care home staff and residents. This project seeks to bring moments of happiness to older people in care and to make them feel a part of the community again. Not everyone living in a care home has easy access to the outside world or regular visitors (or any visitors at all!), so it is wonderful to see their wishes being granted by volunteers. 

Please share with anyone you know who might be able to grant this wish.

Thank you.
