We are running a series of focus groups to understand more about how loneliness affects people in Reading.
We are interested in hearing from a wide range of people as we understand from research we have carried out that a range of situations can make it more likely that someone may be affected by loneliness.
Your participation in these focus groups will help us and local voluntary organisations in the community understand more about how to respond to the needs and wishes of people in Reading, and ultimately help to reduce social isolation and loneliness locally.
The sessions are also a chance for you to find out from others about what is going on, and various groups that may be of interest to you.
You are welcome to sign up to any session.
