Connections

– social inclusion

Most of us will feel lonely at some point in our lives. For a lot of us loneliness can define our lives and have a significant impact on our wellbeing. 
We are promoting social inclusion to try to prevent people from becoming lonely or feeling socially excluded and assisting them to feel less isolated.
