NALC’s New Loneliness Guide

NALC are pleased to report that their loneliness guide Reaching Out is receiving national attention and was flagged up at a Breaking Barriers Innovations (BBI) and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) roundtable on Laying the Foundations for Change, attended by NALC’s policy adviser, Andrew Tubb (who is on part-time secondment with them from Cirencester Town Council). The focus was on how to address issues such as loneliness, health and well-being by creating ‘prosocial’ communities through housing and social. It’s interesting to note that loneliness costs the economy something like £32 billion a year! Don’t forget to let NALC have feedback on the guide and do send us case study examples on what you’re doing to counteract loneliness to andrew.tubb@nalc.gov.uk.
