Tackling Loneliness in Essex

Provide are proudly supporting the United in Kind Campaign. United in Kind is a social movement that is using kindness to tackle loneliness in Essex. For partner networks and individuals, the movement creates connections and enables everyone to take positive action, raises awareness of the issue and gives people the chance to talk about loneliness.

One in four people in Essex say they are lonely, by doing small kind acts we can make a big difference to how connected someone feels to their community, and these connections can build into something bigger to tackle loneliness.
