Being socially connected supports older people to stay in good health. Losing a partner, poor health and mobility, failing eyesight or hearing, loss of a driving licence can lead to social isolation and feelings of loneliness.
The AgeConnect service aims to build friendships and community connections for isolated older people by:
• Linking isolated and/or lonely people to support and activities.
• Providing information about social groups and events
• Working with communities to create new social connection options as needed
