Linking Lives UK is working to reduce social isolation and loneliness among older people. This is primarily achieved by working with churches and Christian agencies to set up visiting/ befriending projects across the UK. Based on a tried and tested approach, we provide training, advice, guidance and ongoing support to projects set up in local communities as well as annual reviews and conferences for our members.

Once established, these projects enable volunteers to visit socially isolated older people in their area and these visits take place on a weekly basis for around 1-2 hours. As a result of this social contact, there are often huge improvements in the confidence, self-esteem and general wellbeing of older people, who may also increase involvement in local activities and events. The lives of volunteers are also positively impacted by learning about the those they visit and building a mutually beneficial relationship.

Donations of any size will make a significant impact to the lives of socially isolated older people.
