  • Need

    Need

    Our local rural communities include above average numbers of older people and there is also significant deprivation in parts of two of the villages we serve.
    There is a lack of local services for older people and they can become isolated, lonely, their physical and mental health can suffer and ultimately they can lose their independence.

    Solution

    Our project will bring local older people together to take part in a programme of outings to local places of interest and eateries.
    The outings will reduce the social isolation of local older people and their physical and mental health will be boosted. Local adults will support the outings as volunteers, adding to the social interaction.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To help local older people to be less socially isolated and boost their physical and mental health.

    Activities

    » We will run a programme of stimulating outings for older people, supported by local volunteers.

    We will collect data on the number of local older people benefiting from outings.
    We will survey those taking part at the end of the project to demonstrate the benefits gained.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Ultimately, the longer term physical and mental well-being of those taking part will benefit and they will be enabled to remain independent for longer.
    We will demonstrate this by monitoring those taking part during their continued involvement with the Cornwater Clubs.

    Risk

    We don't see any major risks as the project is part of our on-going work.

    Reporting

    We will thank donors for their support and provide an option to receive a summary of the project at its completion.
