About this event

Following the success of last year, Haringey Reach and Connect is again proud to be joining the annual campaign which raises awareness of Loneliness and gets people talking about it. 

Loneliness Awareness Week is all about creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends or colleagues about loneliness. Loneliness is a natural human emotion - we are hardwired to need social connections, but for many in our community, particularly older people, it can be an everyday feeling that impacts on their physical and mental health.

Together with our partners in the voluntary and community sector we are celebrating the power of community and connection. This year’s theme is Random Acts Of Connection, which reminds us how those small moments of human kindness – a smile, a thank you, a hello! - can make a big difference to how we feel.

From June 10th – 16th we will:

· Launch LAW 2024 with our Partners at a Connections Lunch.

· Promote social events that reduce loneliness.

· Host workshops to talk about how we can support ourselves and others.

· Celebrate community groups that bring people together.
