My Social Southwark (1.5 years from June 2019)
My Social will develop a calendar of age-friendly and diverse activities for older people. Developing a membership of users, and facilitated by a team of volunteers, this programme will encourage older people to be active, to reconnect with things they loved to do, to have fun and build strong friendships. The project will also pilot a new online platform, Sparko, for those less able to go out and about. It will enable older people to connect remotely to many activities through simple, TV-based technology.
