Addressing isolation and loneliness
We support projects that encourage social interaction and help people feel more connected to their community.
Our Community Allotment enables people who feel isolated due to physical or mental health conditions to take part in regular activities. Many of our community grants address social isolation among older people in Elmbridge.
