Tackling Loneliness Workshop
In partnership with British Red Cross.
19 January, 202311:30 am - 1:00 pm
Feeling lonely and isolated can make life challenging, especially during a crisis. It can be difficult to know how to help. This workshop aims to give you the opportunity to speak openly about how it might feel to be lonely or isolated and learn skills to help others who may be suffering. Using group discussion to address the complex causes and effects of loneliness, there will be a chance to reflect and share personal experiences too. We will also discuss and practise how to be an effective listener in order to support others.
As a result of this workshop, we aim to:
- Feel more comfortable talking about loneliness
- Be able to recognise when someone needs support
- Feel confident to offer support to someone who feels lonely.
