Organisations working to tackle loneliness and build social connections are invited to apply for a share of £5 million of funding, which the government is investing to help them to continue and adapt their critical work.
The expected outcomes of the fund are:
- Effective, targeted relief for those most at risk of loneliness as a result of COVID-19
- Contributing to the evidence base on COVID-19 and loneliness. This includes the impacts that measures such as self-isolation and social distancing are having on loneliness, particularly amongst vulnerable groups, as well as identifying ways that charities can adapt to manage social distancing requirements while still supporting social connection
