Jigsaw Link - Befriending Scheme and Social Programme for Over 50s

0 Reviews

For adults aged 50+ who have a disability or age-related condition, Jigsaw Link runs the following:

  • One to one befriending service - Available for those who are socially isolated and live alone. Members are linked up with a volunteer who will usually visit on a weekly basis to provide companionship. Volunteers can also accompany members to visit places of interest, go out for lunch etc.
  • Older People's Active Living Programme - This includes visits to other community provisions and local places of interest, as well as sessions on dealing with anxiety, relaxation and exercise. We also run Feel Good workshops, with laughter, yoga and compliment sessions.
  • Lunch club - We run a weekly lunch club, visiting local pubs and restaurants. A great opportunity to develop new friendships and visit new places whilst enjoying lunch with a lovely group of people
  • Social Outings - We arrange up to 5 social outings each year, visiting new places and usually enjoying lunch. The outings provide an important opportunity to enjoy new surroundings and great company.
