Loneliness

Everyone needs friendship and conversation. Yet we know that loneliness and social isolation are real issues for lots of people in the UK – of all ages. The number of people who describe themselves as lonely is growing every year.

Places of Welcome is a national network of community groups which provide their neighbourhoods with places where people can make friends and meet friends.

Sandwell Churches’ Link helps to co-ordinate a network of almost 30 Places of Welcome in Sandwell, as well as many more lunch clubs and other activities to tackle loneliness in our communities.
