Social Isolation and Loneliness has a serious negative impact on older people’s health and wellbeing.

The three Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups have invested in a grants programme to tackle this problem, awarding funding to 29 projects across Manchester to provide social activities for people over 50 years old. Projects offer a variety of activities, skills and support.

A hobby journal is available detailing all funded projects and how to contact them. Copies are available by contacting Oliver Cranfield on 0161 834 9823, or email:
