Isolation and loneliness can affect people of all ages, but older people are especially vulnerable to social isolation. According to Age UK, more than 2 million people in England over the age of 75 live alone, and more than a million older people say they can go over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member.
At HALE, we have been supporting people in Bradford for over 20 years and understand how important it is to reduce isolation for the benefit of an individual’s mental and physical health, and wellbeing.
We have a number of services that support people to come together in social settings and reduce feelings of loneliness from walking groups, to lunch clubs and much more.
