As a national charity addressing loneliness and social isolation, we firmly believe that ‘company matters’. We also believe that companies can play a part in addressing these issues either directly or indirectly.

Our Company Matters Programme is a corporate package which provides an opportunity for your business, of any size, to partner with us in addressing loneliness and social isolation. This will, in turn, make a difference in the lives of many people who have very little contact with the outside world. The programme also provides an excellent way of helping you to achieve your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aims, as well as enabling staff to gain skills, knowledge and personal development in communication skills. We have three packages available, each with varying benefits and ultimate impacts for those experiencing social isolation and loneliness.

‘I get on very well with my volunteer visitor and we really enjoy each other’s company. It has given me a new lease of life and I really enjoy my volunteer’s company.

‘When I retired, I found myself isolated and watching TV all day long. Since I started volunteering at Linking Lives UK, I have met some likeminded people, and life has taken a turn for the better. It feels good to give something back by helping other people’

We are delighted to be working with Linking Lives to reduce isolation of those living in the South West. As well as providing financial support, we have also been able to introduce the charity to local community groups to set up and fund local training.
