The Smile Project is a brand-new programme supporting older people to reduce isolation across Bilborough through a volunteer buddying programme. Groundwork will be recruiting buddy volunteers to enable individuals to access local community groups in their area.

The four key objectives for the programme are:

  1. Reduce loneliness and isolation in older people across Bilborough
  2. Reduce negative effects of loneliness and isolation in older people
  3. Set up and support older peoples constituted community groups to ensure the programmes sustainability
  4. Support older people to make community connections and friendships
