Uniting to beat loneliness

Image_0.jpgDiana Crowe, MS-UK's Head of Services, met locally with H Goodwin, Suzanne Howe and Amy Melton from United in Kind, an organisation which is aiming to put an end to loneliness in our communities. It was great to share with each other about the work we have been doing.

There are eleven United in Kind coaches in total whose roles are to connect communities through kindness to reduce loneliness and social isolation.    

It was interesting to hear how the coaches are building relationships across Essex with hundreds of community, charity and voluntary groups to reconnect communities.

The organisation needs everyone in the community to come together, so if you know of any community activities that might be of interest to others in your area, please share by sending an email to provide.unitedinkind@nhs.net. Local coaches can also help set up activities in your area. To find out more about your local coach go to www.unitedinkind.org.
