Befriending Scheme for older people within the Loughshore area
Befriending Scheme for older people within the Loughshore area - Project
The grant will be used to run a befriending scheme providing support for vulnerable & socially isolated older people in the Loughshore area who rarely leave their homes and who rarely take part in community activities. Individuals will be matched with a volunteer who'll home visit, offering them a chance to chat, read, practical support with housework or lifts into town. They will so be encouraged to come along to one of the day care centres in the area to take part in a range of activities fo their choice.
