Supporting social inclusion

Sometimes we all need a helping hand, whether we’re struggling with a task or want a simple chat. However for some older people in their communities, it can be hard to find.

Transport to and from health appointments or even household tasks such as changing high-up light bulbs can be tricky. Often, a chance to get out of the house and have a natter is what’s needed most.

That’s why Lincolnshire Co-op is supporting social inclusion charities and local lunch clubs from December until March, through the Community Champions scheme.

Every time a member shops in a Lincolnshire Co-op outlet, a donation is made through the scheme. Colleague fundraising and the carrier bag levy also go into the pot.

In Lincolnshire, people are volunteering their time through Good Neighbour Schemes set up by Community Lincs, one of the charities being supported.

Friendship at Home runs workshops and sessions in North East Lincolnshire which help people stay active.

Newark Live at Home and North Lincolnshire Age UK are also being supported, as are a number of local luncheon clubs.

For an older person living in a rural community, they all offer a lifeline that brightens their day. And by supporting these groups together, more people will be able to benefit from them.
