This is the final session in the loneliness and social isolation cluster series.

The focus of these events have been to support Big Local areas to alleviate loneliness in their communities, which became even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this final session we will be looking at the road ahead to explore how communities can reconnect in different ways as we transition out of lockdown.

During this session, we will be exploring the additional support Big Local areas might need in order to reconnect with their communities as we come out of lockdown. We’ll explore the benefits, challenges and fears relating to this transition, and the ways they might be overcome using blended online and offline approaches.

By the end of this session, you will have:

  • An increased understanding of the challenges and issues related to ‘recovery’ and ‘reconnection’ as we come out of lockdown and the impact this transition might have on loneliness and social connections
  • Gained some new ideas for activities and opportunities to address loneliness in the context of the ‘new normal’
  • Had an opportunity to share and discuss what you are planning to do locally to support re-engagement and social connection in your area.
