Supporting Older People

One of the winning projects of the Congregational Federation's Serving the Community Awards in 2016 was Embracing Age.  This project, supported by The Vineyard, Richmond, was focused on supporting older people in care homes. Whilst not every church is in a position to obtain a grant to start a major project, many churches could look for ways to set up a visiting scheme to a local care home.

Embracing Age has information on it's website that could be helpful to other churches, and has a section specifically for churches.

Anna Chaplaincy for Older People is another way of supporting people in care homes, and something a group of churches or an area might like to look at. Contact us for more information
