Making a Match

Finding out what's important to isolated older people

'The Making a Match project will work with socially isolated people aged 50+ living in LS16 and LS17. They aim to find out what activities and interests their clients would like to get involved with and match them up with another like-minded person so that they can build a friendship around their shared activity.

Delivered by MAECare in partnership with OPAL. Designing opportunities around the philosophy that services should find out what is important to isolated older people and build on that rather than expecting them to fit into services that already exist.
