Age Concern Nelson Tasman hopes a hui held this morning will help it find new ways to tackle loneliness and social isolation that affect some older people in the region.
Age Concern Nelson Tasman Manager, Caroline Budge, says "we have worked really hard these past few years to keep older people connected to their communities".
She hoped the hui would help kick start a new phase of social connection initiatives.
