The pioneering Reconnections pilot ran from 2015 – 2020, led by Age UK Herefordshire and Worcestershire and delivered with a partnership of local organisations to reduce loneliness.
- Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire
- Onside Advocacy
- Simply Limitless
- Social Finance
- Worcester Community Trust
The partnership brought together skills and experience from within the community to provide a mutually supportive, person-centred service for older people.
After five years of tackling loneliness in Worcestershire, the pilot Reconnections service has been completed. We are thrilled to have been involved in this pioneering approach to supporting older adults and addressing loneliness in Worcestershire.
During the project’s lifetime, Reconnections have received over 3000 referrals and engaged with over 1600 older people. On average, clients received 6 months of support from the service.
