Show Notes

This week we are joined by Martin Walton from Lutheran Care!

In this podcast, we delve into Lutheran Care's role within the 'Community Connections' program, where amazing work is being done combatting loneliness in our communities. Martin discusses the potential for Community Centres to build partnerships with the 'Community Connections' program for referrals and information sharing.

Martin provides insight into how Lutheran Care link individuals with essential services through trust and relationship building. We address the benefits of social prescribing, including activities like coffee mornings and connecting people to non-medical services to combat social isolation and improve quality of life. Additionally, Martin highlights how support for unpaid carers and addressing social determinants of health is crucial for improving the quality of life for those in care.
