Older People's

Outreach Project

The Older People’s Outreach service is a service for elderly Arabic-speaking women aged 55 years and over who live in the Royal borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
​Older women are faced with many challenges as they try to manage their daily lives and take care of their own needs once they reach a certain age and their families (if they have any) have flown the coup. Those who come from different religious and cultural backgrounds often encounter further obstacles which further disrupt their ability to cope alone. Language barriers can lead to debilitating feelings of isolation and helplessness and make it much more difficult to access help and services that some people do not even know are available to them.

Over 50% of older people from minority ethnic backgrounds report feeling lonely on most days, compared to around 30% of the wider older population in the UK.
