Ageing Better in East Lindsey

Talk, Eat, Drink (TED) in East Lindsey 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’ve got a chance to join TED then do it because people are in the same situation as yourself. You’re part of a family; it just gives me a purpose in life.

It (TED) definitely helped me be less isolated. It’s given me the option of having somewhere to go, when I want to go. But part of it is this partial hearing I have … goes on to talk about being hard of hearing… if you go to places and can’t hear you feel more isolated.

I love it; it’s great if I didn’t come here I’d just have a doze in the afternoon. I wouldn’t miss it for anything

I found it very hard to adjust to retirement after close contact with families and couples on holiday for 17 years. I found lots of things to do on my own like craft and art projects. I enjoyed cooking and reading. But I lacked that human contact and conversation with interesting people. Since joining the TED groups I have found a purpose. Something I lost when we sold the business. Now I have a reason to write more poems and join in conversations.
