FINAL TFH FULL REPORTJULY 2016“Between 2013 and 2016, Age UK Yorkshire & Humber implemented a 3 year project called ‘Together for Health’ that aimed to deliver a new ‘social connectedness’ service to reduce levels of loneliness and isolation amongst vulnerable older people and improve their health and wellbeing. This project set out to work with health service professionals in secondary care, A&E professionals, geriatricians and surgical wards to ‘prescribe’ the ‘Together for Health’ service to older people who presented with health needs impacted by their social needs as assessed through measurable risk factors of loneliness. The project involved four local Age UK charities in Yorkshire: Barnsley, Bradford & District, Wakefield district, and Age UK Knaresborough & District.”
