Our community services team of dedicated staff and volunteers help isolated older people to re-build a fulfilling and independent social life and reduce feelings of loneliness.
We are focussed on connecting people aged 65+ in Middlesbrough with other people with similar interests and experiences. This includes connecting people with our own friendly volunteers; activities in their own communities and other local services that can be of help.
You can be matched one to one with an older person, or be part of a weekly group. You can help with gardening in the community or facilitate our new telephone groups. If you like to arrange events or drive you could support those as well!
Whatever it is that you are passionate about we can work together to try to make positive changes for older people in Middlesbrough.
