Amicus Horizon and Lewes DC Join Us Bursary Project
Amicus Horizon and Lewes District Council clients have come together to form a social network ‘joinus’. The idea for the project has been driven by clients who want to extend the range of activities available to older people and include those in different schemes and in the community. Clients have formed a steering group that by coming together to design and produce an expanded programme of events. The network uses digital (e.g. facebook) and traditional (e.g. scheme manager coffee mornings) forms of communication to enable clients to link up, find common interests and form friendships. Joinus enables clients to enhance their natural circles of support tackling isolation and loneliness.
