Keeping Connected is a project based in Lincoln working with people over 50. In this project, we aim to improve Lincolnshire by trying to stop loneliness and isolation whilst passing on skills to beneficiaries that could become hobbies or potentially help them become financially sustainable.
Although the idea is to have a social hub where beneficiaries can come and go as they please, we also aim to tailor specific sessions to what beneficiaries want. We use specific needs assessments to tailor our workshops to have the greatest impact on the beneficiaries we work with.
Our hope is to have the elderly population of Lincoln being social and feeling a part of the community.
