British Red Cross Connecting Communities

Do you feel lonely or socially isolated and don’t know where to turn? Or do you know someone who needs support? The British Red Cross can help. 

Connecting communities

Our brand-new connecting communities service offers up to three months of support to suit you.

We help people feel better connected and enjoy the benefits of being more involved in their local community.  

You’ll be paired up with one of our local team members. Together you will rediscover your interests, rebuild your independence and find new friends. 

Our services are delivered by our skilled and dedicated volunteers and staff. They can draw on decades of experience in helping people to live independently and confidently in their communities.

Our support is also tailored. Everything we offer allows people to realise the things they want to achieve.

Notes

Many of us will feel lonely at some point in our lives. On this page, you can find out how to get help in your area from our connecting communities services. 

Right now, over nine million people across the UK regularly feel lonely.  

There are many reasons why we may start to feel isolated or alone. They include coping with the loss of a loved one or adjusting to life as a new parent.   

Do you feel lonely or socially isolated and don’t know where to turn? Or do you know someone who needs support? The British Red Cross can help.
