Invitation to VCSA organisations to display at Loneliness event on 04.12.2019

Loneliness and social isolation are an increasing issue in the UK. Being isolated or lonely has far reaching and sometimes devastating effects on individuals and health and care systems. The effects of loneliness and isolation have been linked to other health problems and can have a significant impact on communities. Connecting with people who are lonely can be difficult, often people do not self-identify with loneliness and are uncomfortable with having a conversation about their loneliness. Yet the benefits of successfully tackling this issue are significant for the individual and society.

Shropshire VCSA are inviting organisations to display at the Loneliness event, that is being held on 04.12.2019 in the Council Chamber at Shirehall, to show how they are supporting people to reduce loneliness in Shropshire.
