Working with Uttlesford Seniors to reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation
CVSU’s Community Builder programme enables older residents in Uttlesford to identify issues that are affecting their lives and, with support, bring their ideas to life, get more involved in their community and solve their own problems.
In order to tackle the issue of increased loneliness and isolation, we support older residents to create and maintain weekly social and activity hubs, and we organise special outings and events. In addition, we open access to crucial health and wellbeing services and other community activities which would be of benefit through the co-ordination of 4 ‘Safe and Social’ information and entertainment events per annum. In the south of the district we can also work 1-2-1 with residents to signpost and support them into engaging and fulfilling activities.
