The FED for Independent Living, (January 2015), “Out and About Pilot Evaluation”.

 

“The Out and About project has changed lives! That’s a mighty big statement from a small project, but it’s true. Just take a look at the inspirational short stories in this guide to see the difference a little thought and helpfulness can make to the lives of older, lonely people”.

 

Please find attached the evidence relating to the informal research study undertaken by the founding partners in 2012. The results have formed the basis of the Time to Talk Befriending Service.
