Groundwork are one of the Local Delivery Leads that are delivering the project as a single organisation though working with local community groups and organisations in close partnership is a vital part of our approach.
One of our key aims is to seek out people over 50 that are vulnerable to social isolation. Drawing upon our experience of community development we will be setting up a variety of simple themed events which will encourage people to come and talk to us. Like the other Local Delivery Leads we will support local volunteers to act as co-investigators and co-designers as we go into communities and find out what existing strengths can be built upon with small investments.
