Challenge

Loneliness can be felt by people of all ages, but as we get older, factors that lead to loneliness begin to increase. Older people lose mobility, often have a lower income and suffer many bereavements. Loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health. Social networks and friendships not only have an impact on reducing the risk of mortality or developing certain diseases, but they also help individuals to recover when they do fall ill.

Solution

At least 300 people will be invited to participate in intergenerational activities. This project will reduce isolation and increase understanding and relationship building between young and old. Each quarter they'll learn and share skills (poetry/art/cooking/and more) and hold an showcasing event. By engaging people of all ages, we can build a community of mutual respect and understanding.

Long-Term Impact

Our projects work with around 300 people each week providing them with a source of free healthy nutritious food, mainly sourced from surplus, which enables many families to eat for the rest of the week. With more funding we can provide our guests with supported volunteering and secure befriending opportunities.
