What We Do

Elders' Wellbeing Programme

About this project

Social isolation and loneliness can contribute to poor health - both physical and mental - especially for older people living alone. Many elderly people in our community have limited social support and contact with friends and family. The aim of the project is to offer physical and mental wellbeing support, and to allow Somali elders to have a purpose, get out of the house, meet people, socialise and learn.

The service has been designed predominantly for Somali elders, but is open to elders from all other communities.
