Charity description

Linking Lives UK logo
Linking Lives UK exists to support older people across the UK struggling with loneliness or social isolation, by enabling churches to set up befriending schemes in their community.

Based on a tried and tested approach, we supply the necessary training, materials and ongoing support required to enable befriending schemes to be set up by local churches and run effectively in local communities.We are also working to develop schemes in parts of the country where those over the age of 65 are most at risk of loneliness. In these areas we aim to build effective networks and raise necessary funds to enable projects to operate to the benefit of those most in need.We also recognise that older people have a significant part to play within the life of local communities and we explore ways of encouraging mutually beneficial ways of engaging with volunteers and all those with whom we work.

Our aim is to set up a minimum of 12 new befriending schemes per year and each of these will make a significant difference in the lives of at least 20 older people each year as volunteers begin to arrange regular visits.

A donation to Linking Lives UK will contribute towards establishing one of these schemes and improve the health and well-being of many older people.
