Our VIP programme – standing for Very Important People – seeks and engages with those people – whatever age – who may have become socially isolated and lonely for a wide variety of reasons. We bring people into this programme, organising events and activities aimed and encouraging people to engage with each other and the wider community.
Some of the current participants have benefited from free classes such as zumba, yoga, free cycling, walking, and access to social groups such as our Men’s Empowerment Group, and services such as NHS Health Trainers and NHS Health Checks and volunteering opportunities.

Our community dementia service is available for people who live in their own home or in a care home within Trinity's catchment area.
