Making a Match matches socially isolated older people with like-minded people through friendship groups to develop their social networks and reduce their isolation. It starts with people’s interests as a basis for friendship. It is based on a peer support model. The project will be built on the needs of older people and the project workers will be expected to work at evenings and weekends.
