You can refer people over 65 in Oxford City to our LinkAges Connect programme. The programmes aims to introduce younger and older people in Oxford City to spend time together one-on-one and get out and about in the community. We match up people based on proximity, and try our hardest to bring people together based on mutual interests to create genuine, long lasting friendships. Pairs could go for afternoon tea, go to the theatre or attend a local activity such as a lunch club or IT class.
This programme is designed to support pairs to get out and about, and be active in the local community. It is not, therefore, a traditional 'home visit' befriending service, and may not be suitable for house bound people. Please bear this in mind when considering the suitability of the person you intend to refer to the programme.
Please fill out the form below and one of the team will be in touch to discuss their eligibility for the programme.
