Let’s Talk Loneliness : 22 Jan, ONLINE

January 22, 2021 | 10:30 am 12:00 pm

This webinar, open to churches throughout Cornwall, will focus on loneliness and ways in which we can all respond effectively.

About this Event

‘4.2 million people in the UK say they always or often feel lonely’ (double the number in March 2020)

‘58% of churches in the UK consider loneliness and social isolation to be the key issue that will be facing people in their community in the next year’ (‘Hope Beyond’ – AllChurches Trust , July 2020)

This interactive workshop is an opportunity to find out more about the impact that loneliness and social isolation can have on the lives of older people (and those of all ages). We will be discussing ways in which churches and individual Christians can make a difference in their local communities and exploring potential informal and more organised approaches.

The event is open to any representatives of churches or Christian organisations based in Cornwall.

The session will also include a summary of the new Linking Lives UK telephone befriending model – Two’s Company’ which is available to churches as part of their outreach to those who may be socially isolated at this time.
