iSolutions to Isolation will create innovative, cost-effective and transferable solutions to tackle Social Isolation and associated health issues in remote and sparsely populated communities in NPA area. The main target group to benefit will be older people socially isolated at home in these challenging settings by building resilient and connected communities supported by technology enabled and co-created home-based service solutions that avoid residential care settings.
The project will build on partners expertise and experience in a multi-actor based service approach that integrates evidence, policy, practitioner experience and technological innovation in designing transnational solutions to social isolation in remote contexts. Examples of iSolutions to Isolation may include Smarttext social support services, Social Networking Advisory tools and online Social prescribing resource tailored to target groups. Inter-generational activity will be a key theme in iSolution for Isolation design to encourage community connectedness and help address the NPA area challenges of youth depopulation and the carer crisis among ageing populations.
