What is the issue?

There is some excellent work already being done to address this need:

But there are challenges:

Our mission:

Combine the resources, compassion and localness of the churches that are in every community to “re-connect” 1000 older people in Bournemouth so that we stop the increase in loneliness in our town

Referral Sheet

Here’s how it works…

  1. We accept referrals from anyone, including individuals, as long as the referred person has given permission, is over 65 and lives in Bournemouth.
  2. Meeting up - We will meet with the person to identify activities and additional support that will help them maintain their independence.
  3. Connecting  - We will make sure that they can get to these activities (and come too if that’s helpful).
  4. Keeping contact - We will provide regular telephone support or find a volunteer to drop in and chat on a regular basis if needed.
  5. Making sure it works - We will contact the person after a while to make sure they are happy and see if there is anything else we can do to help

How can you join in?

Roger - Part 1

This December we'll be working with as many people as possible to help them feel less lonely in time for Christmas. But we urgently need more befrienders to achieve this!

So we've been spending time with 3 befriendees in Bournemouth and some befrienders in Poole to talk about what they do.

Today, we'd like to introduce you to 'Roger'. Roger lives with his wife in Bournemouth but they have a strained relationship and she works. Roger had a stroke and now cannot consistently leave the house so we partnered him with a befriender from a local church. Here's what Roger had to say.....
