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?

Befriender Part 2 - Trixie

Last week we introduced you to 'Roger' and this week we have 'Trixie'. She is 81 and lives in warden assisted accommodation. There used to be a great community spirit there but since budget cuts there are less activities going on.

Trixie has family living locally but she can no longer go their house as they do not have a downstairs loo and she cannot manage stairs. As a result, she hardly sees them or hears from them. Trixie has multiple health issues.

Last year we were able to bless Trixie with a Christmas hamper from St. Clements Church Community but this year we are grateful that she has a befriender.

We urgently need more befrienders. Please help us to help more people like Trixie.
