Linking Lives UK – a Christian project addressing social isolation and loneliness
You will no doubt be aware that loneliness and social isolation are issues of increasing concern in the UK, and Church Urban Fund have found that almost 70% of Anglican clergy see loneliness as the biggest issue in their communities. You may also be aware that the government produced a Loneliness Strategy last November (2018) and we are working with them, along with other Christian organisations, to discuss the role of churches and faith groups in addressing these issues. It is against this background that we launched a promotional film outlining our work, and we are looking for partners from churches and Christian organisations who would be interested in working with us to set up a Linking Lives befriending project in their community. The short film can be found on our website where further information can be downloaded.
