Mercers Charity


The work will support people who are lonely and isolated particularly those who are responsible for caring for their partners or other family member. We will target people 65 + from a wide range of BME communities in the Borough in need of support. We have held consultations with local older people and they have requested opportunities for learning new crafts and skills e.g. jewellery- making and sewing in a social setting; with opportunities to take part in games and tournaments e.g. board games and quizzes and to join in musical activities e.g. sing- along sessions. All these activities are good "ice- breakers" encouraging less confident people to engage in conversations and make new friends.
