Encouraging older people to come and try different activities from table tennis, bowls, singalongs to gardening clubs to reduce isolation

by Age UK East Grinstead & District in East Grinstead, England, United Kingdom

We took over the Glen Vue Centre from the West Sussex County and although the building is less than 15 years old - looked very tired and unused. We have redecorated and brought the place back to life. It is becoming the place to be seen in the Town. We are actively trying to create a Community Hub accessible to all. Our Charity was founded in the 1950's to support the older vulnerable people of the area - and this ethos continues to this day.

Through your funding we will be able to purchase equipment, pay for entertainers and have the ability to reduce the loneliness of older people.  This will also  increase their wellbeing through social contact, the active activities and their interaction with others.  

We are creating a "reason to come" to the centre - a reason to get out of the normal fours walls  and the remoteness that people can feel even within a town like East Grinstead and especially the rural ares around it.

Let's make 'Reducing loneliness through active activities' happen
