Have your say

MUM-OF-ONE Susan Fowler, aged 35, from Ecclesall

ISOLATED elderly people in a Sheffield community can find help and company with a new project.

Regenerate-Rise, which reaches out to lonely older people, will be launched in Woodhouse and Nether Edge with a lunch and entertainment at Woodhouse Salvation Army, Tannery Street, on Wednesday, June 13, at 1pm.

The mission of the scheme is to eradicate isolation across the UK.

Project workers are getting together with Sheffield Homes, Sheffield Council’s south east community assembly, churches and community groups.
