Loneliness Webinar

On Thursday 4th June members of the Connection Coalition came together to share experience and expertise on tackling loneliness, in particular the specific challenges communities are facing during COVID-19. 

They shared findings on who is at particular risk, how best to develop interventions that support people and what plans in the future government and third sector organisation have to push for change in the way people are (or are not) supported.
