Relieving Loneliness: Community Connections

What does it do?

Loneliness and isolation can have big impact on the health and welbeing of older people. Age UK Bournemouth, Poole & East Dorset provides a Community Connections service to help tackle the causes of isolation and loneliness.

The service aims to enable older people to overcome the barriers of isolation & loneliness, share the company of others, talk to someone, pursue interests & activities in the local community, maintain independence and gain information & enable clients to stay at home longer.
