Tackling loneliness and isolation

Intergenerational befriending can combat social isolation and loneliness. This is why we provided a £30,000 grant to Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. The project aims to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of older people living in nursing and residential homes and contribute to children’s positive wellbeing. The project will run until early 2020.
