About Reconnections

Reconnections is a partnership of local organisations, specialist providers and wider stakeholders working together to reduce loneliness in Worcestershire.

  • Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire
  • Age UK Malvern & District
  • Deaf Direct
  • Onside Advocacy
  • PSSRU
  • Rooftop Group
  • Rural Communities Programme –
    Wychavon District Council
  • Simply Limitless
  • Social Finance
  • Worcester Community Trust

The partnership brings together each organisation’s skills, experience and understanding of the needs of older people – as well as how loneliness can impact lives – to deliver a person-centred service.

Reconnections is the first service in the UK to focus entirely on loneliness, the causes, its impact on the lives of older people and how it can be tackled in a long term, sustainable way. We work with individuals aged 50 and over, as well as with volunteers of all ages – a combination that delivers life-changing results on both sides!

Reconnections has been commissioned by Worcestershire County Council and the local NHS, and is supported by Nesta, the Care and Wellbeing Fund, the Gulbenkian Foundation and others.
