Loneliness and social isolation in Norfolk – support available

2nd July 21

Better Together, CanConnect and Lily have updated their service leaflet showing the support available for people in Norfolk who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation, and how to access it in different districts. The services offer one-to-one, group and peer support to adults (18+) whose loneliness and social isolation are the primary issues affecting their health & wellbeing. The services can also form part of a wider package of support for individuals where loneliness and social isolation are symptoms of other more complex challenges, such as caring responsibilities, mental or physical ill health or debt. Clients are supported to:

  • Access social and community activities, volunteering opportunities and local support networks
  • Identify and overcome barriers that prevent them from becoming connected
  • Reconnect with family & friends and make new connections in their community
