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