Loneliness Awareness Week is more important than ever due to the past year with the pandemic as it has highlighted the importance of social interaction and mental health.
During the pandemic at Crawley Town, but we have made it our main focus, as a Foundation, to support all participants, especially our Extra Time Hub members and Tackling Loneliness Together through this difficult period.
Adrian joined our Tackling Loneliness Together programme during the pandemic after finding out about our support network at Crawley Town through a mutual friend.
“Crawley Town have provided me with someone to talk to and the support I needed during the isolation. Being able to talk to people keeps me connected and calm.
It has also given me something to look forward to and focus on during the week. I have been able to also meet like-minded people and share support with everyone on the session.”
Throughout lockdown and with the addition of Tackling Loneliness Together, the Community Development team, at Crawley Town Community Foundation have been working hard to support everyone equally to ensure they don’t feel isolated in this difficult time. Keeping in contact with them and delivering virtual sessions has been the best form of support.
