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 Essex, Nottingham and 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.
Independent Age’s community services are designed to achieve positive change in the lives of the older person by listening to what they need and shaping the support accordingly over an agreed time period. Our overall aim is for people to feel better connected both socially and to other forms of practical help, information and advice.
