The Social Inclusion Group has been set up with the following aims:

To identify those who are isolated and in need, especially those suffering the effects of dementia.

To attempt to understand the root causes of loneliness and isolation, and develop a strategy to alleviate these problems.

To set up a network of befrienders using existing resources where available.

To provide aid and assistance by signposting existing resources (eg. luncheon clubs), making referrals to partner organisations, using volunteers and an advocacy advisor.

To publicise these measures in a way that can be easily located and accessed.

To investigate the needs of carers to ensure that they get the support they need.


Our vision is for a happy, hospitable, compassionate and just community which helps people help themselves, and our mission is to provide a more effective community process for achieving this vision. We do this by creating a network of volunteers which works with agencies, charitable organisations, local businesses and churches, to identify and provide relief to people in need and find community building solutions in Ludlow and the surrounding villages in South Shropshire.
