This week sees the beginning of Loneliness Awareness Week 2024 which, this year, is entitled 'Random Acts of Connection'. This fits in very well to many of the activities, projects and resources run through Linking Lives UK across the country which provide opportunities for us all to make a difference in the lives of those around us - particularly those experiencing loneliness. 

Linking Lives Eastbourne offers befriending and 
connection with the local community

We are a befriending scheme for the over 65’s who are living alone, connecting them with volunteers who offer friendship through visiting, telephone chats or going to activities, with the aim of reducing loneliness and improving quality of life.

Linking Lives Eastbourne offers a range of services: 

  • Visits at home
  • Telephone chats
  • Company to an activity for 3-6 months 
  • A monthly Friends café
