Community Connecting

Supporting people over 50+ to increase their self-esteem and make connections in their local area 

We all value our interests, relationships and local connections and recognise their importance in maintaining our physical and mental health and wellbeing. When we experience difficulties it's easy to forget about them and it can be hard to take the first step to re-engage.

Community Connecting recognises this and supports people over 50+ to find out what services, activities and groups are available in their local area.

We support people to rebuild lost confidence and try new things or get involved again in previous interests and hobbies. We do this by providing one to one support and encouragement from volunteers.

The service is available to anyone 50+ who is socially isolated and living in Edinburgh.
