With the help of our delivery partners, older people across the city will be helped out of social isolation through targeted activities run by Leicester Ageing Together.
The programme links older people to a network of support at their local level, making it easier for them to join together and feel part of the community.
For more details about each partner and their Leicester Ageing Together projects, please see the list to the right.
Ageing Better is a £78 million investment of National Lottery funding from the Big Lottery Fund to support people in later life. This supports 14 partnerships across England: Birmingham, Bristol, Camden, Cheshire, East Lindsey, Hackney, Isle of Wight, Leeds, Leicester, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Sheffield, Thanet and Torbay. Partnerships work with older people to create new and enjoyable ways for them to be actively involved in their communities, helping to combat social isolation and loneliness. They do this by bringing services together to improve their delivery and make them easier to access.
