About this cause

We support over 2000 older and vulnerable people throughout rural North Cotswolds, with volunteer-led, sustainable services to keep people connected, positive and cared for, including community transport, carer respite, befriending, and community activities. Services reduce loneliness and isolation, improve health and wellbeing, quality of life, and support independent living.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Activities are vital to older people’s wellbeing and health, even more so as Covid-19 restrictions lift. We anticipate an increase in need as people try to re-establish their lives and go out; many new clients from the crisis want to stay with us. Many clients will need additional support, having lost confidence and ability in isolation.
