About us

Prama is a Dorset Charity formed over 35 years ago. We help mainly older people and their carers enjoy life as they age by supporting them in their homes and through a wide range of community activities that help to minimise isolation and loneliness.

As traditional fundraising becomes increasingly harder for charities, Prama is developing additional ways to fund raise for these activities.

In 2018 Prama formed PramaTravel – a fully ATOL bonded travel agency with access to the well-known holiday brands offering great value holidays and some unique travel experiences.

Prama Travel raises funds for PramaLife.

PramaLife is a community outreach programme across Poole, Bournemouth and East Dorset.  We offer a wide range of activities and services which look to directly tackle social isolation and lead to increased personal independence, self sufficiency and dignity.

Activities include:-

-dementia and age friendly clubs

-chaplaincy and befriending

- carers support groups

- local community activities and, 

- inter-generational programmes

Some of our clubs focus on specific hobbies like gardening, sporting memories, keep fit, some support those living with dementia, others simply provide a space to natter over coffee.  We also provide trips out on our minibus.

The local community is a vital part of the care people need to maintain independence at home.  While your carer will support and help around the house, prama feels that it really important to be able to maintain links to the outside world.  This is where PramaLife comes in and can open the door to a whole new circle of friends.

More information about PramaLife can be found on our website

Through Prama Travel we can offer you the same holidays available through other agents and online that won’t cost you any more AND invest ALL profits we make in to community activities. We believe we are unique in offering this as a charity!
