Event description

Description

We are running a series of focus groups to understand more about how loneliness affects people in Reading.

We are interested in hearing from a wide range of people and we understand from research we have carried out that certain situations make it more likely that someone may be affected by loneliness.

Your participation in these focus groups will help us and local voluntary organisations in the community understand more about how to respond to the needs and wishes of all people in Reading, and ultimately help to reduce social isolation and loneliness in Reading.

In order to ensure discussion is focused, please sign up to one that is most relevant to your situation.
