Loneliness and what we can do about it - free workshop 7 - 9pm

Loneliness can affect anyone and everyone, but the stigma is such that in order to address it seriously you must first consider all aspects of it and feel able and comfortable talking about it.

However many people see loneliness only from another person’s perspective or purely retrospectively.

This session will support you to explore how we perceive loneliness and what you can do about it, both in your own life and to support others either formally or informally.

Run by Peter Lefort from the Eden Project's Big Lunch Programme
