£2m fund for organisations tackling loneliness

One year after the publication of the Government’s landmark Loneliness Strategy, which outlined almost 60 commitments to end loneliness, Minister for Civil Society Baroness Barran has an-nounced a new £2million fund to help organisations at the frontline of tackling loneliness across the UK.

The funding will be available for frontline, grassroots organisations, such as community cafés, street parties, coffee mornings or local walking groups, which bring people together and help them build social connections.

Details about the application process and eligibility will be announced “in due course”.
