Loneliness is something that is experienced year-round by older people. This year we want your help to make a difference to the lives of older people, by making a New Year’s resolution with a difference.

Aged 50+, living in the West of England and have been affected by cancer? Have you found accessing activities a challenge due to work commitments? We would like to hear from you!

We would like to welcome Fran Garland, Macmillan Prevention and Re-enablement Project Assistant to the team. Fran has previous experience in Care, working as a Support Worker, Registered Manager and more recently working for Weston college as a QCF Assessor in Care.
