Embracing Age is a Christian charity working towards a world where older people are valued, connected and full of hope. We do this by combatting loneliness, mobilising volunteers, equipping churches and speaking out.
Our core projects are:
1. Care Home Friends – mobilising an army of volunteers to befriend care home residents. We have area wide projects in Richmond upon Thames and the Isle of Wight, and can place volunteers in any of the care homes for older people in these areas. We also support churches across the UK, through webinars and resources, to help them adopt their local care home.
2. Carers Connected – providing online support for informal carers via a weekly Zoom call to chat and pray together, a private Facebook group and useful resources.
