Telford & Wrekin CCG had an invitation to attend the Tackling Loneliness in Telford and Wrekin: A Call to Action Conference which took place on 11th October 2018. The event was well attended by patients, service users, health professionals, local authority, community groups and charities and was a chance to look at the good work that already happens within the Borough of Telford and Wrekin.
Social isolation and loneliness doesn’t just affect those who are older, it can affect anyone at any time.
During the conference a number of initiatives were shared with the audience, and to find out more about them visit the Healthy Telford website.
There was also time to break out into smaller groups and discuss ideas and suggestions how individuals can make changes to help those who feel isolated and lonely.
