Tackling loneliness and isolation

Tackling loneliness and isolation
The subject of loneliness and isolation is one we're hearing a lot about recently. Monarch Mobility speaks about Iriss' resources on the topic.

Plan P prompt cards published

We have published a set of cards that have been designed for those who work with or support older people. The cards have been produced as part of Plan P, an Iriss project focusing on preventing social isolation and loneliness amongst older people.

Shaping the choreography of care and support

Alison Petch

Alison Petch (Iriss Director), Lisa Pattoni and Gayle Rice (Iriss Project Managers) and Ian Grout (Glasgow School of Art) explain the background to this project which involved students from the Glasgow School of Art working with practitioners and people who use services to consider how to reshape care and support. There were four themes: reablement, partnership working and communication, social isolation and anticipatory care.
