Project members spoke at the Ageing Well in Wales conference. The project has been cited as best practice by the Older Persons Commissioner. When we asked them to describe what being part of the project meant to them they stated: ‘a feeling of belonging’… ‘being part of the community’… ’getting out of the house’... with many expressing the importance of companionship and meeting new people. Participants say the project helps them feel more socially included, more active and less lonely. Over a 1/3 have told us that they would be alone or doing nothing if they weren't attending this project. Page 12
