What is LinkAges?
LinkAges is an elderly isolation project aiming to help students and elderly people across London form a friendship over tea and activities. Nationwide, around 10% of old people feel lonely often or always; over half of all people aged over 75 live alone; and over half of all elderly people say that television is their main form of company.
