Elder Refugee Scheme

This is a brand new scheme for Elders from Refugee Communities. This scheme is designed to reduce social isolation, increase integration experiences and community connections and promote better overall health and wellness. We will be able to provide you also, with information about services for elderly people.

However, in light of the coronavirus we are taking a different approach for the time being and will you know when the scheme is running the way we intend it to.

We want to make sure no one is left out and are reaching out to our Elderly refugee community to deliver food, essential hygiene items and other products.

We also would like to know how you are coping so we can see how we can help with any other difficulties or concerns you may have. You may just want a friendly person’s voice at the other end of the phone to help ease any loneliness you may be experiencing. We would be happy to hear any ideas you have that we can do to make this service better for you.

Our office is currently closed but we will be delivering this revised service through telephone and video for now and where necessary (and safe to do so) we can visit you outside of your home.

This scheme is for participants aged 60 and over, and are from a refugee community background.
