Help people feel less lonely

The British Red Cross is looking for people to spend a little time helping those who feel alone.

Through Connecting Communities, it is introducing new services to help tackle loneliness and social isolation across the UK.

In Cornwall, one-to-one person-centred support for up to 12 weeks can be offered to anyone who would like to re-engage with community activities, events or become part of a social group in the Redruth, Camborne and Pool areas. This will help them meet new people and regain their confidence and to start to feel more connected within their community.

To find out more about this service, where else in the county support can be offered or to volunteer, call Sue on 07912 080911 or Charlet on 07912 080912.
