Linking Lives UK

Linking Lives UK

Linking Lives UK (previously operating through Link Visiting Scheme) help local churches to run a unique befriending service, primarily for isolated older people. The main focus is arranging home visits once a week for around one hour. They also run other activities and events which encourage social interaction including Understanding Computers Courses, Bowls Clubs, and Singing Groups. All visitors are vetted for suitability and supported and trained in their roles. This simple approach can often be a lifeline for those in the community who rarely have contact with the outside world.
