Over 9 million people are either always or often lonely.
Feeling lonely always or often is linked to early deaths – on a par with smoking or obesity.
Pretty shocking stats right?
That’s why we feel so passionate about our EFL Tackling Loneliness Together Project.
Between July and December 2020 we will be supporting people 70+ to reduce or end their feelings of loneliness.
The project can offer:
Online activity sessions
Garden gate visits
Pen pal schemes
Monthly contact via post
The project is free of charge and anyone meeting the below criteria can access support:
Aged 70 and above
Widowed or living alone
