Every Mind Matters campaign and tackling loneliness

The new national lockdown may leave some people feeling lonely or isolated as social activities and contact with family and friends are restricted.

The Every Mind Matters campaign, developed by the NHS, has a range of support products which councils may find useful to share with their networks.

The following organisations also provide some useful advice and guidance which councils may want to use to promote mental wellbeing:

· Mind

· Mental Health at Work

· Comms2point0

The Living Letters project is also connecting people and developing intergenerational friendships to help prevent loneliness during the coronavirus pandemic. The Chickenshed charity has volunteers aged from 18-21 who want to connect with senior members of communities.

If you have care homes or group settings that may benefit from this scheme to help prevent lockdown loneliness please contact Rachely@chickenshed.org.uk for more details.
