Up & Out
The Up & Out projects goal is to promote and facilitate more movement and socialisation within the older population, particularly in care homes. Supplying story & activity books for free to care homes across the UK.
Each humorous issue follows a group of pensioners taking on a different extreme sport and whilst this idea may sound far-fetched scroll down for the real deal!
Whilst creating the comic books the decision was made to work in black and white, allowing people to colour the book in should they so wish. Research shows colouring in helps calm and focus those with dementia and alzheimer's, it's equally relaxing for everyone else too!
The back of the books feature 'The Up & Out Games,' a series of accessible and fun exercises along with a record sheet to track progress. Of course we couldn't help but put an Emzfit twist on them!
