Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

South Liverpool Linking Lives

Befriending service that offers companionship to lonely and isolated older people in south Liverpool.

Help for you or someone you know

If you would like to help to end isolation for an older person during this time, please get in touch. We will be matching people for regular phone calls, to help bring a smile to someone’s face and remind them they still matter.

Mobile: 07858 570301

Email: southliverpool@linkinglives.uk

Our trained volunteers (who all have references and DBS checks) will visit individuals in their own home once a week for a chat, to share in an interest or hobby, or to accompany them on a short trip out. The service will ‘match’ volunteers with clients
based on interests and personalities and we hope that good friendships will result.

Our befriending service also runs in-house activities, helping older people to build a new social network.

Service leaflet and client referral form can be found at the bottom of this page.
