People across Sefton are being encouraged to do their bit to help reduce loneliness amongst older people this summer – simply by sending a postcard.

Members of the community are being encouraged to get involved and do their bit to help reduce loneliness, simply by sending postcards from their trips either abroad or in this country to Parkhaven Trust.

Kim Crowe Chief Executive, said: “This is a wonderful initiative encouraging community spirit through the simple and nostalgic act of writing and sending a postcard.

“Research shows that there are many health benefits from having conversations about past holidays and trips, bringing back happy memories and encouraging residents to talk to others, especially for people living with dementia. This campaign aims to promote these conversations and it is always lovely to receive a card through the post.”

It’s easy to get involved and ten minutes of your time could really make a difference to our residents.

Please send all postcards to Parkhaven Trust HQ, Liverpool Road South, Maghull, L31 8BS
