Local churches provide unique opportunities to bring together people of all ages, creating long lasting supportive relationships and a sense of family. Isolation, maybe due to a bereavement or ill health; can cause people to become detached from their community, therefore, robbing them of nurturing and life-giving relationships. So how do we bring the gift of friendship found in the church to those who are isolated in their homes?
This learning community will increase your awareness of the extent of social isolation among older people and introduce you to a way that you can address it; through the Linking Lives visiting scheme. This model has been put together to enable churches to use a tried and tested approach to reach and support isolated older people.
