Combating Loneliness and Isolation

Meet new people, learn a new skill or get active in your Wickersley Ward.

Loneliness and Isolation is a social issue, but it also affects people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Loneliness has a significant impact on people’s quality of life including physical and mental health.  In turn this has an impact on all services. We know that this is an issue that not only affects older people but can affect everyone, “Loneliness doesn’t discriminate” – Jo Cox
