An Opportunity to Combat Loneliness

Having worked for many years with disabled people and their families in my old life, I saw how loneliness can make difficult life challenges so much harder to bear. Like so many of us, I have also experienced times of personal loneliness; and those experiences have made me keen to support any measures that can break down barriers between people and bring us into a better understanding of and care for each other. We regularly post items from the Campaign to End Loneliness and this is a fantastic opportunity for someone who feels as I do to really get involved.
