Loneliness and social isolation

Everyone needs friendship and conversation. Yet we know that loneliness and social isolation are real issues for lots of people in the UK – of all ages. And the number of people who describe themselves as lonely is growing every year.

Working in partnership with local services, Together Southwark has already helped create a number of community hubs, Places of Welcome, lunch clubs and other activities to tackle loneliness in our communities. And we won’t stop there, because we understand just how important it is to be able to make friends, and meet friends.
