Kent Coast Volunteering are really pleased to be able to share with you, ‘Anthology’, a creative compilation of the experiences of older people shielding in Lockdown. This specific project was made possible, thanks to funding from Independent Age, and gave KCV, during Covid, the opportunity to discover and give voice to the lived experiences of the members of our Good Neighbours Befriending Service during the 2020-21 lockdowns.
This publication also serves to remind us why people need befrienders and why the funding provided by Dover District Council to support KCV’s Good Neighbours service in Dover is much needed and valued. We look forward to continuing our work with you to combat the loneliness and isolation experienced by so many.
Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy reading Anthology.
