If you or someone you know has been feeling lonely for a while, a first step is to notice and identify this, even just to yourself. Everyone will have a different experience of loneliness and different reasons for why they are feeling this way.

Everyone approaches ageing with different attitudes, feelings and health. At CAN we like to think you’re never old until you stop finding joy in life, so perhaps finding and experiencing joy is what makes us feel alive.

We’re working with local communities, businesses and a great group of volunteers, to bring some joy and fun to the lives of older people who might like to connect more but don’t know where to start, or don’t think there’s anything they would enjoy.

There’s no pressure but we know that human connection is an essential part of everyone’s health and wellbeing.

If you would like to find out more about how you or someone you know who is aged 65 or over can connect with your local community, please do get in touch by calling us on 01202 461330 or email [email protected].
