Investment to help tackle loneliness

Investment to Help Tackle Loneliness From the end of July 2018, charities and community groups will have the opportunity to apply for grants to fund work that supports isolated people and those suffering from loneliness. Grants will go to organisations already delivering work that is proven to benefit individuals and society. The aim is to use a range of strategies, including opening up local spaces for community use, to make connections within communities to combat isolation. A total investment of £21 million will be made up from the UK Government, Big Lottery Fund, Co-op Foundation, Peoples Postcode Lottery and the Health Lottery.
