Loneliness Awareness Week 13 – 17 June 2022
An announcement from East Sussex Public Library and Information service
Loneliness Awareness Week is an annual campaign which aims to get people talking about loneliness.
Libraries are working with the Reading Agency to provide Reading Friends, bringing people together through books, stories and talking, helping to combat loneliness in the community.
Reading Friends Groups meet on a regular basis in libraries to talk about reading as well as anything else that interests them. You don’t need to read anything before or at the session and everyone is welcome, so come along, meet new people and share stories together.
Reading Friends can also be enjoyed as part of our home library service with Reading Friends visiting people in their homes to share stories and chat.
