Befriending Lunch helps with social isolation
With an ageing population, social isolation is becoming a UK wide issue.
Based on the latest Health & Well being data for Tamworth, the town has over 15,000 people aged 65 or over, of which over 3,500 are lone pensioners. Additionally, there are almost 7,000 income deprived pensioner households. Both the lone pensioner & income deprived groups are at high risk of social isolation.
In a bid to help the elderly Tamworth Community to overcome isolation, every Wednesday, during term time, we run a Befriending Lunch between 11:00 am & 2:00 pm at our Hub in the Castle grounds
At our befriending session, you can enjoy a cooked meal as well as social activities covering 41/2 Hours. You will find that these activities help to stimulate you & at the same time, give some respite to your carers.
We are also able to give support through telephone calls & home visits.
