Recent news reports of higher levels of loneliness than ever.
According to the ONS, in the week up to 1 November there were 4.2 million adults across Britain who said they were ALWAYS or OFTEN LONELY – compared with 2.6 million in parts of the summer and before the pandemic. This means approximately 10,000 people in Oxfordshire . This includes people in your community.
We have responded with a Telephone Support Service, which is highly valued and effective at reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation.
You can make a huge difference to someone’s life, with the gift of a small amount of your time.
