The Big lottery have awarded funding to Friendship at Home’s project, “Young at Heart” which will help the Charity to further grow and develop its support for older people.

 

This Project is a continuation and development of their overall scheme to reduce isolation and loneliness and improve health and wellbeing of older people in the Borough of North East Lincolnshire.  This Project will expand and compliment the current services, this includes: expanding their hugely successful Befriending Service which provides 1-1 support in the home, by increasing their volunteer base of befrienders and rolling out a telephone befriending service; an independent living service will also be widely available that helps older people to access the support needed to maintain their independence at home. They will also continue to offer social and exercise activities to reduce isolation and encourage activity and wellbeing.

Friendship at Home has been working in North East Lincolnshire since September 2006 to help reduce the isolation and loneliness which older people face. The project was previously funded by Help the Aged and then a 5 year grant from the Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund until June 2015.

In the last year Friendship at Home engaged Liz Baghurst, Director of Funding at Seafox Management Consultants to undertake an independent evaluation of the service to identify how best they could evolve to meet the needs of the community. The Evaluation findings were compelling and showed that the service is a lifesaver for many clients and there are more people in need of their support because they have aging communities which can now be helped by the project.

Julie Rigby the Manager said, “we are delighted to receive this grant from the Big Lottery Fund to develop activities and services for older people over the next five years:  The project will make a huge difference to older people in the Borough.  Our social and exercise groups are a lifeline for older people and really make a difference.  Now we will be able to offer more opportunities, not only to social activities but also for our Befriending and Independent Living service.

For those interested in undertaking voluntary work with older people, the opportunities to gain new skills, new experiences, receive training, be part of a dedicated team and to feel you are making a contribution to your community will be readily available.  We know from experience the huge difference it can make to remain socially active within their community and how valuable the work of our volunteers is.”

The Big Lottery Fund supports the aspirations of people who want to make life better for their communities across the UK. The Big Lottery are responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by the National Lottery for good causes and invest over £650 million a year in projects big and small in health, education, environment and charitable purposes.

Since June 2004 The Big Lottery has awarded over £8 billion to projects that make a difference to people and communities in need, from early year’s intervention to commemorative travel funding for World War Two veterans.

Since the National Lottery began in 1994, £33 billion has been raised and more than 450,000 grants awarded.
