Help to tackle loneliness

Spread some kindness and help tackle loneliness

Are you interested in making a real difference in your local community without dedicating huge amounts of time?

With one in four Essex residents often or always feeling lonely, United in Kind, a new county-wide movement which aims to tackle loneliness and social isolation, needs your support.

By taking just a few minutes out of your day to take a neighbour’s bin out, chat to a stranger at a bus stop or make time to call in on someone who lives alone nearby, you can make a big difference to how connected that person feels in their community.

Or if you have more time to spare, why not volunteer a couple of hours to help at one of the many community organisations, charities and groups who are already supporting Essex residents who feel lonely or isolated?

It's time to re-connect and make everyone feel part of a kinder community. To find out how you can get involved, and to see what’s happening in your community, visit You can also share your stories of kindness and inspire others to follow your lead on social media using #UnitedInKind.

Together we can tackle loneliness with kindness. Start today!
