Care Home Friends is a project started by the charity Embracing Age in 2015. Originally confined to the London Borough of Richmond, in 2016 the project was a joint winner of the Cinnamon Project Lab and has now started to replicate nationally.
The Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington says:
"I have been inspired to hear of the work of Care Home Friends. It is a simple but brilliant idea to connect churches with Care Homes. Elderly people have so much to give, and such links promise to bring real benefit to those who visit, elderly people who often value more human contact, and the churches themselves, as a way of demonstrating the love of Christ for people whatever their age."
