How this cause brings people in the community together

We listen to and empower people to help co-produce activities, including communities at greater risk of continued loneliness and isolation. We provide early interventions via a network of activities, such as walking groups, relaxation, and arts and crafts. This helps prevent mental health issues from escalating, while strengthening wellbeing, social connections and assets.
