Working with Communities

3. Working with Communities to increase the services and activities available.

As we started to create the conditions in the city and find the most isolated and lonely older people, we wanted to makee sure that they had strong and vibrant communities around them that they could get support from and contribute to.

We  encouraged innovation through this theme, supporting the development of larger and small projects that  trialled new methods of supporting lonely and isolated people to meet and engage with their communities. 

Community Development for Older People

City-wide roll out of  asset-based approach providing a diverse range of activities, co-production and capacity building.

Community Kick-Start Fund

A fund for community groups who have an idea to kickstart activities that tackle isolation and loneliness.

Community Researchers

Training and supporting a group of older people to become competent in qualitative research to undertake community audits and much of the evaluation of BAB.
