How to tackle loneliness with the Ageing Better programme
A series of events that will share lessons from the Ageing Better programme to reduce loneliness among people over 50.
What’s it about?
A series of interactive and collaborative digital events will bring people together to share learnings from the Ageing Better programme. With funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, Ageing Better is working with 14 local partnerships across the UK to support people aged 50 and over who are experiencing or at risk of social isolation and loneliness.
Who’s it for?
These events will be particularly useful for organisations working to directly tackle loneliness, including:
- central and local government
- health and social care organisations
- private sector organisations with an interest in tackling loneliness and social isolation.
Why should people get involved?
This learning programme will
- provide practical tips and resources to understand and address loneliness in older people
- share insights from the Ageing Better programme’s partnerships working to support over-50s
- give participants the tools they need to support people in their communities better.
What will happen?
Over the next two years 14 digital and face-to-face events will be held with the partnerships around the country. They will share effective ways to address and reduce loneliness among people over 50.
The first Ageing Better programme digital event will take place on Thursday 21 May.
The session will focus on tackling loneliness during the Covid-19 pandemic, and supporting individuals and communities to recover in the longer term.
