Share how you’re connecting older people in your community

team-spirit-2447163_1920Dudley CVS is involved in a small piece of work with Age UK Dudley to help older people make connections in their communities that can combat loneliness, boost health and help people to be more resilient.

We’d like to shout about the great work that is already happening at a small scale, local level in community groups across Dudley borough, celebrate what they’re doing and learn about how we can support more of this type of activity.

If your group is helping older people to stay connected, or you’d like to get started, tell us:

  • What types of activities you do together, if you’re already doing things as a group
  • What more you would like to do – and what’s making it difficult to do more of what you’d like to do
  • What would help you to do continue or extend your activities

For inspiration, you might like to read about what Netherton Regeneration Group is doing to build kindness and social connectedness in their community.

If you get in touch, Helena and I will pay you a visit to help you to shout about the great things you’re up to and to offer you further support. So please, feel free to contact us using the comments section below, emailing smallgroups@dudleycvs.org.uk or calling Becky on 01384 573381.

  1. Thanks Becky,

    At Quarry Bank in Bloom we’re looking for volunteers to join in the community project of making

    Quarry Bank even more beautiful with additional floral displays, to those already in place.

    We have a “committee” meeting Wednesday 16th May at Quarry Bank Community Centre at 6.30.

    The few volunteers we have meet every Monday @ 9.30am for a couple of hours, to water, weed and litter pick.

    Any volunteers interested in joining us, just come along.

    Have a good weekend, Becky.

    Kind regards,

    Tom
