Rainbow Community Builder Programme

Working with Harlow Seniors to reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation.  Rainbow’s Community Builder programme enables older residents in Harlow to identify issues that are affecting their lives and, with support, bring their ideas to life, get more involved in their community and solve their own problems. In order to tackle the issue of increased loneliness and isolation, we support  older residents to create and maintain weekly social and activity hubs, and we organise special outings and events.
