Helping Older People


Many older people in small communities find it difficult to get out and socialise with others. The Foundation helps support the organisation of social opportunities which become a valuable part of older people's lives.

Dedridge Lunch Club

A grant of £850 was awarded to the Dedridge Good Neighbourhood Network to set up transport and fitness classes for the elderly. The classes improve the skills required for daily living, including mental stimulation, muscle control, mobility, and flexibility. The classes encourage people to get out of their homes and engage with others, thereby reducing isolation.
