The ‘+FIVE-0 & On The Go’ project is reducing social isolation and improving health and wellbeing for people over 50 in the Newtownabbey and Antrim area. The three-year project is using a £249,508 grant for staff costs, training volunteers, and to run activities, including health checks, day trips, cooking, line dancing, digital photography, and events. Older people will be supported to become volunteers and help others, and the project will use their skills to help other community groups.
