Building on the Loneliness Connects Us research and in particular the Youth Seminar, we are supporting groups in Bury, Greater Manchester, to host a participatory seminar to develop community-based strategies for reducing loneliness.
Loneliness Connects Us – Bury Seminar event is being run by St Michael’s and St Bernadette’s Parish, with MMU and 42nd Street.
23rd June, 10am – 4pm, St Michael’s Hall, Whitefield, M45 8JN
The starting point is that loneliness is of major concern and not only affects the old but the young and the whole community.
The event aims to raise awareness and explore effective support within the community.
The intended audience are teachers and councillors, parents, GPs, social services, mental health services, young people, youth leaders, and members of the community.
This will be a collaborative event, full of research-informed and arts-inspired, activities to help us collectively create solutions to reduce loneliness.
So join us for an interactive seminar that will enable you to voice your ideas and opinions to end loneliness.
