Chinese Elderly Befriending Project
Colchester Chinese Culture Society (CCCS) have been successful in receiving funding from the Local Connections Fund -National Lottery Community Fund. The Chinese Elderly Befriending Project will be delivered to the elderly Chinese community in Colchester & Tendering.
Our volunteers from Colchester Chinese Culture Society will provide services to the elderly Chinese community who have been isolated and shielding since the outbreak of the pandemic with limited resources. For Chinese Elderly community, language and cultural differences contribute to their difficulties, increasing their sense of isolation. Befriending is a positive way for Chinese elderly to get back into society through friendship and support.
The Project will run from March to April 2021 over two months. If you would like to access our services as part of Chinese Elderly Befriending Project, please contact:
