Ageing Better - Community Connectors Time Limited Interventions
In August 2018, Ageing Better practitioners involved in delivering a time limited Community Connector service held a workshop to start sharing the learning gained about supporting socially isolated people over 50.
A time limited intervention is defined as any project that is aiming to reach socially isolated people aged over 50 and to connect them to a wider range of opportunities or local activities. There is a fixed amount of time over which the support is provided. The support may include practical problem solving (such as helping people access benefits) but also includes building confidence and encouraging people to access what is available to them.
The report looks at what is done within Ageing Better, issues with time limited interventions and putting people first.
