We can make a difference to the socially isolated elderly, you can help too

Through friendship and compassion we seek to prevent social isolation and provide support to elderly people who are socially isolated or at risk of becoming socially isolated. We want to see elderly people actively engaging in their community, being treated with dignity and respect. We achieve this through our BEFRIENDING SERVICE, CLUBS and MONTHLY OUTINGS, with the help of VOLUNTEERS.

Hand in Hand is a project of The Methodist Church (Newcastle Central and East Circuit) for people aged 65 and over and was established in January 2000.


Through friendship and compassion we seek to provide support to elderly people, especially those who are socially isolated or at risk of social isolation, to help prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation.


Our vision is to see the elderly treated with care, dignity and respect, helping them to actively engage in their community and no longer be subject to loneliness and isolation.
