Active & Connected – A new TTVS TorrAGE Ageing Well Project – Volunteers Needed

  • Published on Jun 13, 2019

    We are pleased to announce that TTVS Torrage Ageing Well has received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund for a new project called “Active and Connected”.

    It is a volunteer led programme, primarily to reduce social isolation and loneliness of older people who have a fear of falling or who have fallen.  A volunteer will visit for a maximum of 16 weeks to encourage and motivate clients to undertake simple functional exercises at home, building confidence in walking plus improving strength and balance.

    Following on from this, volunteers will accompany the person out into their local community and enable them to attend a range of social and/or exercise groups to help build new friendships, re-connect and be part of their community.

    We are in the process of recruiting volunteers and would love to hear from you!

    Please contact Project Coordinator Denise Seaton 01805 62266 for further information.
