Housing is now the highest area of need amongst callers with follow-up from ALONE staff for support with housing Transfers/ Housing applications to Local Authorities, support to prevent homelessness and support with decluttering and home repairs & maintenance.
- Dawn Chorus – we have two groups of older people attending a singalong session via a teleconference call weekly. Small numbers attend, but really enjoy it.

Both project facilitators are now also facilitating individuals within the group to lead the sessions as there was interest to do this- which bodes well for the sustainability of the project.
