In 2015, LifeCare got together with Edinburgh’s Broomhouse Hub. The result is Vintage Vibes. It’s a partnership that helps those aged 60 and over who are feeling lonely or isolated.
On offer is support and long-lasting friendships. It’s a great opportunity for our VIPs – those over 60 – to make new friends and meet new people.
It’s a fantastic volunteering opportunity too.
To help beat loneliness and isolation, our partnership:
So far, nearly 200 people have joined us. They each bring their personality to the project. And that helps our over-60s connect with their communities and beat loneliness.
We’re always looking for more volunteers (age 17+). To find out more, click here
Vintage Vibes trains volunteers from across Edinburgh. Then we match them with our VIPs. If you know about LifeCare, you’ll know we pair carers and service users who share interests. It’s a big part of our successful services. It’s a great success for this partnership too. Often it results in long-lasting friendships.
