If you need a bit of extra support to come to one of our activities, we’re here for you. Link-Up provides one to one support and encouragement, including home visits. One of our friendly staff members can help you identify your interests and which of the 380+ activities is the best match for your needs. We’ll help you find a way to get there if you can’t use public transport, and come with you to the first few activities. We can also help you find other services for older people in your area.

Link-Up helps people to access physical, creative & mentally stimulating activities and helps to improve the health and wellbeing of older residents both at home and in the community; increasing independence and reducing demand on secondary Health & Social Services.  Link-Up won a CLCH Partner Award for supporting people into activities.  To find out more click here
