Age UK Lindsey hosts a number of fun weekly activities to help reduce social isolation in older people. You're bound to find something to inspire you!
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, our events and activities programme has been suspended until further notice. Whilst this is not an easy decision to make, it is vital that we ensure the safety and well-being of the older members of our community. Therefore all of the activities mentioned below are suspended until further notice. We are currently working with our partners to deliver alternative solutions for helping to reduce loneliness and isolation during these difficult times. Check out our Keep Connected project for more details.

The Out For Lunch Project
Age UK Lindsey is running a project in partnership with T.E.D, working with lunch clubs in East Lindsey to support them on common issues and to help them to continue to offer a valuable service to local communities.
Talk, Eat, Drink East Lindsey (T.E.D) is a six year Big Lottery funded project inspired by Lincolnshire's proud food heritage, which will see older people getting out and about. It involves them becoming more involved with social activities and feeling positive about the future.
Helping more people to join a local lunch club
The charity understands how hard it can be for someone to join a lunch club, but we appreciate the huge benefits belonging to one can bring.
If you would like to join, then we operate a referral system where we support someone to find their local club and make the initial visit easier by working with the person and the key contact at the club.
