Loneliness Fund for community groups
The Local Connections Fund will be open to charities and interest groups that reduce social isolation.
The Government has announced that book clubs, walking groups and other community projects will be able to apply for a £4 million fund designed to help reduce loneliness in the coming months. The Local Connections Fund is designed to help local organisations bring people and communities together as the country starts the recovery from the pandemic. You may wish to encourage community groups in your area to apply.
