This exciting initiative is aimed at reducing loneliness and isolation among older people by providing them with a friendly visit from a GoodGymer or two. With the Office for National Statistics finding that half a million older people don't see or speak to anyone for at least five or six days a week, the GoodGym social visit hopes to tackle this issue head-on.

The social visit is a 30-60 minute opportunity to chat and connect with an older person, with no other tasks required. It's a chance to make a real difference to someone's day just by simply having a light conversation and helping to reduce feelings of loneliness with a much-needed friendly face and a listening ear.
