Cuppa Care Project

The Rotary Club of Norwich is working in partnership with Vision Norfolk, Hear for Norfolk, Age UK Norwich, Norfolk LGBT+ Project, Norfolk CAB, Norfolk & Waveney Mind and Age UK Norfolk on the Cuppa Care Project.

Recent studies suggest that around half of older people with sight loss experience loneliness, compared with about one third of older people generally.  The common objective that all the partners in this project share is the prevention and reduction of loneliness and isolation experienced by people in Norfolk.  A person may just wish to get out of the house, chat about something that’s worrying them or simply meet new people – the project has friendly volunteers on hand who can help.

The project uses a bus which travels around the county to Great Yarmouth, Holt, Norwich, East Harling, Strumpshaw, Attleborough, Cromer and Rackheath.

If you would like to visit the bus in one of its locations, please see the below posters.

Volunteers are also always needed to welcome people and join the visitors for a cuppa and a chat. If you would like to volunteer for this project please contact Penny or Edward on [email protected].
