We have put together a few examples here of some of the many ways you can get involved this #LonelinessAwarenessWeek and continue the awareness going forward, whether that's supporting others who may be feeling lonely or giving yourself the support you require too.
- Stay connected, reach out, have direct conversations about mental health and feelings of loneliness#letstalkloneliness > Campaign to End Loneliness https://www.campaigntoendloneliness.org/blog/coronavirus-and-social-isolation/
- Minister for Loneliness, Baroness Barran is encouraging the public, in partnership with Post Office Ltd and Royal Mail, to put pen to paper and send letters to those vulnerable and elderly who may still be shielding > https://www.gov.uk/government/news/loneliness-minister-write-letters-to-people-isolating-at-home
"Writing letters might be a slightly forgotten art but it’s more important than ever to connect with people, and putting pen to paper is an excellent way of making sure our friends, family and neighbours know we’re thinking about them."
Please do comment or get in touch with us about other great resources or tools to combat loneliness, whether local to your area or nationally. We'd love to hear from you.
