Tackling Loneliness – Voluntary Action South West Surrey invites you to a seminar on loneliness to launch their new Community Point service

Nearly all of us experience feelings of loneliness at some time in our lives but for some, it can be a genuine challenge and pose major health risks such as heart disease, an increased risk of dementia and depression. VASWS is running a free seminar on loneliness, aimed at professionals across health, social care, education, voluntary, community and faith groups and anyone who might be interested in supporting people affected by or at risk of loneliness and/or social isolation. 

Community Point is a new service based in Guildford Town Centre where people can drop in and find out about community activities and services.  Its Community Connectors will take their time to listen to people to find out how best to help them and offer support to those who may be feeling anxious or uncomfortable about approaching groups or organisations directly.   Funded by the National Lottery, it is based at Voluntary Action South West Surrey premises in Castle Street and covers the Boroughs of Guildford and Waverley.
