Are you feeling lonely?

Posted on:

If you are feeling lonely, or know someone else who is, there are plenty of simple, affordable actions you can take, such as:

  • going for a walk with someone;
  • inviting someone out for a coffee and a chat;
  • finding out about affordable events nearby;
  • going along to a gym class or playing in a sports team;
  • joining a society or local community group to meet like-minded people; and
  • reaching out to those around you so you can both feel the benefits of in-person social connection.
