Tackling Social Isolation and Loneliness in East Suffolk
Social isolation and loneliness and their impact on people of all ages in communities across the District was the top priority for action overall across our network of Community Partnerships – six of the eight Community Partnership identified isolation and loneliness in their top three priorities. Today is about learning from experts in the field, but also hearing about local community-led projects and the impact that they are having in terms of connecting people in East Suffolk.
