Mental wellbeing

Our volunteers would like to engage more with their befriending clients, to encourage them to take part in social activities outside. This will help address issues of loneliness and isolation.

About this cause

We’re a group that wants to support older people in later life by making things easier for them. We would like to provide a range of outdoor activities to encourage the older person to get back out into their community, when they are struggling financially and to improve their anxiety after lockdown. This will help with their mental and physical health by reducing isolation and loneliness.

How this cause brings people in the community together

Our befriending service is offered to the older people of our community, is run solely by volunteers and is a free service to anyone over the age of 65. We are trying to make things better for the lonely and isolated older residents by enabling them to feel safe and confident enough to socialise again in the outside world.
