Some volunteers provide friendship to older people through a regular exchange of friendship letters.
The letters themselves provide a nostalgic offering in age of electronic mail! We are extremely grateful to The Asda Foundation who are funding our Silver Letters programme.
We have a number of partnerships with care homes across the UK who are offering the service to residents. We are also receiving referrals from occupational therapists, local care providers and other organisations, as Silver Letters can be a rewarding experience for older people to participate in.
If you know an older person who might be interested in receiving regular correspondence through the programme or would like more information, please call Chris on 020 7224 2731 or send him an email.
