Minority Ethnic 60+ Companion Support

Translate

The ME60+ Companion Support project connects people  from minority ethnic communities aged 60+. The project provides multi-lingual companion support to build meaningful connections, reduce social isolation and improve health and well-being for all involved.

We focus on accessible social activities, so companions will then often meet in small groups for their chosen health and well-being activity. We also encourage speakers of all languages (beginners as well!) to meet and make connections with each other – using English, Cantonese, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Punjabi, Romanian, Urdu and more.

We are running information sessions so you can find out more about what Companion Support is about. Sessions will take place during:

  • Wednesday, 29th June, 1.30pm – 2.30pm, Wellesley Centre, Wellesley Parish Church, Wellesley Road, Methil, KY8 3PD
  • Friday, 1st July, 11am – 12pm, Community Room, Morrisons Supermarket, Esplanade, Seafield, Kirkcaldy, KY11 1SL
  • , Wednesday 6th July, 3pm – 4pm, Viewfield Centre (entrance opposite car park), 2 Viewfield Terrace, Dunfermline, KY12 7HZ.

We will also have training dates coming up from 15 July. Register your interest using the link or contact us directly. If you are unable to attend one of our sessions, please speak with Louisa for an alternative time.
