Liverpool Reconnect Service
Our Befriending and Re-ablement Service has launched in Liverpool to tackle loneliness and social isolation
The Liverpool Reconnect Service can give you the opportunity to increase your independence, improve your confidence and overcome loneliness and social isolation.
Who can access the service?
Anyone aged 65 and over, living in Liverpool, who is lonely and isolated can access this FREE service. Call the team on 0151 256 2549 for more information.
We can help people to:
- Feel less isolated
- Reconnect with community activities
- Get involved in meaningful activities
- Improve your social life and come along to one of our new social groups
- Focus on your health and well-being
- Manage your money
How does the service work?
Once we have received a referral, we will advise about what happens next. This may be a Befriending and Re-ablement Officer home visit (people can access up to 6 weeks of one to one support FREE, followed by volunteer Befriender visits, if required) or information on our frequently run social groups, where people can participate on an ongoing basis.
To access our Reconnect Befriending and Re-ablement Service call us on 0151 256 2549.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Befriender please give us a call: – 07741 198931 or 0151 256 2549. All volunteer Befrienders are carefully selected, references and criminal records checks are completed and we aim to match people with common interests.
Liverpool Reconnect groups meet regularly at a variety of venues across the city, giving Liverpool residents aged 65 and over the opportunity to meet new people, have fun and reconnect with your local community.
Helen Pattie Volunteer Organiser and Promotions Officer says: “We’re delighted to launch our new April to June Social and Interest Groups’ Programme. Our new programme has a mix of regular activities such as City Clickers, Keep Fit, Get to Know Your Technology, Beat the Budget and lunchtime social groups. We also have some amazing trips and visits including LFC Stadium Tour, Shiverpool Tour and afternoon concerts.”
The programme is correct at the time of publication. Some activities may be subject to change. Please telephone 0151 256 2549 to reserve your place.
