Dudley 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Becky on 01384 573381.
