TED Ageing Better in East Lindsey is working with individuals, groups, organisations and local businesses across the district to reduce the experience of social isolation and loneliness in our 50+ population.
Talk, Eat, Drink (TED) in East Lindsey Programme is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund under its Ageing Better programme. The TED Programme tries to identify the good provisions that are delivered through existing groups and facilities and helps to develop and promote them. This is achieved through the involvement of over 50s and local organisations.
TED is working to reduce isolation across East Lindsey and is designed to empower and connect individuals, helping to create sustainable change in communities.
The TED Programme looks to help organise self-sustaining Friendship Groups, deliver Age-friendly Business Awards and work with a variety of Delivery Partners to reach a wider community.
If you are interested in getting involved, either by becoming an Age-friendly Business, creating a local friendship group, becoming a TED member, volunteering or taking part in our regular events, contact the TED team firstname.lastname@example.org today.
Age Friendly Businesses and Services Award
Do you want to be known in your local area as ‘Age-friendly’ and be recognised for providing an excellent service and environment for older customers? Or do you use a local business that provides outstanding service and want to let others know?
The free TED Age-friendly Business Award gives customers the confidence to know that businesses meet a range of criteria, from a clutter free environment to excellent customer service.
The Programme looks to work with a variety of Delivery Partners to reach a wider community and to also conduct research into the challenges over 50s face as they reach retirement. The current commissioned themes are: Advocacy and Advice, Digital Skills and Access, Befriending Services, Health and Wellbeing, and Older Men’s Activities.
