The CIS Project aims to support older people with sensory loss who may feel lonely or socially isolated or may lose independent living skills as a result of the daily challenges of their sensory loss. This service has been developed. To reach out to those individuals and to offer support, assistance, social opportunities and companionship through trained volunteers.
