Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the issues of rural isolation and loneliness across the UK.
It is widely estimated that 1 in 4 of us (that’s over 165,000 people) living in Leicestershire and Rutland have suffered the unwanted feelings and negative impact of loneliness as a result of lockdown and ongoing social distancing measures.
Just as anyone can feel lonely, anyone can take steps in their everyday life to reach out and help others in their local community suffering from loneliness.
To help people take action across Leicestershire and Rutland the Rural Community Council are offering some FREE Zoom based training sessions in early August.
These sessions are open and suitable for all and will include:
- Explaining the common causes and effects of loneliness
- Talking through ways to reach out, connect and help others that may be experiencing loneliness
- Sharing useful links, tools and resources to help tackle loneliness
Details of the sessions and a link to register your free place are below.
