More than a third of the UK population is over the age of 50 both nationally and in Calderdale. It is estimated that 1 in 5 older men and 1 in 10 older women are drinking enough to harm themselves.
Lifeline recognise that this group of the population have different needs as such and are delivering a project to specifically deliver key prevention messages across Calderdale, so that over 50’s become more informed to make choices about their alcohol consumption and are equipped to support their positive health and wellbeing in the future… volunteer today…
Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund, equipment has been purchased as well as tutor support in order to help older people get online.
Launching at the end of January 2016
