A social enterprise dedicated to inspiring the community to nurture their physical and mental health through positive sustainable living is bringing happiness and hope to people at home via their non-profit digital newspaper.
Produced from a home office in Pembrokeshire using profits raised from marketing services, Life Seeker attracts up to 4,000 readers per issue, and in response to recent changes, content has been adapted to focus on virtual support and entertainment in addition to the regular stories about good work, living well, accessibility, youth matters and general food for thought.
The latest bumper issue includes virtual events such as meditation sessions, online gigs, a magic show, a virtual quiz and community craft projects. It celebrates the ‘Rainbow Fairy’ window paintings, the local theatre team making face shields and hosting singalongs, ideas for entertaining and educating kids at home, Pembrokeshire’s new time banking platform, a children’s book to help parents explain the pandemic, a film to promote the West Wales Learning Disability Charter, a ‘Miss You/Stay Safe’ film made by Neyland community school and more.
Founder and Editor of Life Seeker CIC, Sally Boyton explains why now is a crucial time for people to think and act positively from home,
“Life Seeker was developed in response to the need for people in rural communities to stay connected through accessing information and services to enable them to thrive from home. Studies tell us that regularly digesting content to make us smile has a positive impact on our mental health. Our newspaper is a fun and contemporary way to share the wellbeing message throughout West Wales to and bring an abundance of opportunities into one, easy to navigate place. To ease the current scenario, we’ve worked hard to publish this bumper issue in the hope that the contents will benefit many more whilst at home.”
