Earlier in the year, the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness was launched at the Houses of Parliament. Issues around loneliness are now appearing in the media on an almost weekly basis, such is the concern by government, charities and wider society.
Linking Lives UK is working hard to address these issues by supporting churches to set up befriending schemes in their local communities.

These visits can be a real lifeline and are an opportunity to provide good quality time for someone else which is often mutually beneficial.
