Improving quality of life through friendship


Linking Lives UK exists to empower and equip individuals and churches to significantly impact social isolation and loneliness in local communities.


Find out how you or your organisation can improve the quality of life of those experiencing loneliness in different ways by selecting one of the options below:

Inspiring individuals

We run a monthly webinar called ‘Power of One’ which provides hints, tips and short case studies for individuals to use in their day to day lives.

Equipping volunteers

We run regular online and face to face training for volunteers engaging in activities such as lunch clubs, community cafes, and drop-in groups.

Supporting churches

We support churches to create local befriending schemes in which volunteers visit or telephone those facing loneliness or social isolation
