What impact will this have?

  • Many older people in the area are socially isolated due to health problems and/or a lack of family and friends nearby.
  • Our lunch group gives older people in the area a vital opportunity for community and social engagement.
  • During the summer a trip gives the group the chance to get out of London and visit the seaside.
