MHA Communities - PenarthSocialising, friends, companions, keeping in touch, loneliness
What does it do?
Through befriending, lunch clubs, assisted shopping, activity and friendship sessions, outings, escorts to appointments and much more, MHA Communities schemes across the UK help to tackle loneliness and isolation in people over 55 – helping them to lead fulfilled lives and remain as active members in their local communities.
As one member said, "When I moved to Penarth I wondered how I would make friends. Since joining Penarth live at Home Scheme as a volunteer I have felt welcomed and most of all useful! I’ve made a lot of friends and love coming to the activities on a weekly basis. It’s been a loneliness lifesaver for me and I am very grateful."
Penarth Live at Home have been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to increase the wellbeing of older people by creating opportunities for sharing their life experience and showcase their heritage in Penarth.
The scheme's activities programme is designed and led by its members and volunteers to ensure that we are providing the practical and social support which those we serve need.
Contact us today to see how we could be of service to you or a loved one living at home.
