Feeling connected

Importance of connections

Most people like to make friends and socialise with other people but it's not always easy; especially if you're unable to get out much.

The loneliness and isolation that results from lack of social contact can harm your health.

There are things you can do to meet people and to make new friends.

Loneliness and social isolation are serious problems in the borough for people of all ages and are harmful to health.

They can lead to poorer physical and mental health and increase chances of developing dementia, depression and early death.
