Skip to main content BS3 Community remains open for general nursery provision. The premises remain closed for all other services. There is no general admittance to either the Southville or Chessel Centre.

Improving the Lives of Older People is a community group with the aim of reducing loneliness and isolation.  ILOP has created three community projects aimed at addressing this need: Tech and Talk, Alonely Monologues and a Community Retirement Programme.

One of those themes was the isolation caused by the lack of understanding of computer technology and the era of the “Internet of Things”; on-line shopping, email etc.

Also, in today’s community, there is a lack of recognition of the effects of isolation in older people. These possibilities become critical nearer the point of retirement.
