Somali Resource Centre

St Monica Trust, the Dolphin Society and the Grateful Society jointly fund their Community Elders’ Activities Programme for community elders. This includes coffee mornings, visiting green spaces, information & advice sessions, mental health & well-being sessions, and social events to enhance social connections for lonely elders. Most of the older people they work with feel lonely and socially isolated and reported to us that the funding has enabled them to “offer community elders services that fit better with their ethnic, cultural, and religious values and preferences.”
