Grants totalling £170,000 made to 17 local organisations tackling isolation and loneliness
Isolation + Loneliness project partnerships 2019-2020
Due to the generosity of our donors, we have been able to raise £170,000 to enable us to work with charities that combat isolation and loneliness and improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
We received 32 proposals from local groups and have awarded the money donated to us to 17 local organisations. This is to help them make a positive impact on the lives of local people of all ages by connecting them with other residents and providing education, social activities and support.
We were looking for projects that had been identified by talking to local people, were highlighted by local data and could demonstrate long-term outcomes. We are also keen to work with organisations that are actively working on outreach to extend their services to new people and are inclusive.
