Are you over 60 years of age?
Do you live in Walsall and feel lonely?

We have a new service that could help you…

‘Making Connections Walsall’ is a friendly service for older people in Walsall that aims to stop people feeling socially isolated and lonely. Manor Farm is one of only 4 voluntary organisations chosen by the Local Authority to connect older people to the right community based provision for them. 

The Making Connections Walsall (MCW) Programme will also improve wellbeing and reduce preventable Health Service and Social Care usage.

Manor Farm is proud to play an important part in helping to making life better for older people. Our Social Connector Lorraine King is based at Manor Farm and she will happily meet you and discuss the types of activities and support available.

Everyone is different so we will help find what’s right for you!

'What if I would like to go to church, maybe a lunch club or just meet some nice people for a bit of company?’  

MCW can help! 

‘I don’t see anyone.  It would be nice to go for a cuppa or join an activity. 

MCW can help!

I wonder what is happening in the world but no-one comes to visit me.’  

MCW can help!

If you are an older person or know an older person who would benefit from more interaction and would like support from the MCW contact the Fire Service on 0121 380 6690. 

Those accessing MCW will also be offered the opportunity to have a Safe and Well Visit if they have not previously had one. 

Ask your GP, practice nurse, social care worker or fire service for more details or call 0121 380 6690 Now!
