It is very important that, as a community, we are aware of the difficulties being faced by those living nearby and try to help as much as possible.

To help ease loneliness, we would like to initiate regular activities, such as coffee mornings and soup lunches, to encourage those who are on their own to get out and meet others. Also, by publicising local events and activities, so that everyone is more aware of what is going on and better able to get involved.

Good neighbourliness is key in a friendly, healthy society and we would encourage as many residents as possible to volunteer to help others locally. Please see suggestions in the volunteering section of the Wellbeing Hub.
