A GROUP of community panels have teamed up with Age UK to tackle loneliness among older people in Rotherham.
Community First Panels in Valley, Rotherham East and Boston Castle wards have allocated funding to help the charity put on more activities and groups.
The new initiative follows the Rotherham Less Lonely Campaign, which ran in April to encourage people to support Age UK.
Lesley Dabell, chief executive of Age UK Rotherham and Chair of the Campaign Group, said: “This is a wonderful response to the Rotherham Less Lonely Campaign.”
“It’s great we are getting real support for this work.”
