Feeling Connected Feedback

Closed 28 Feb 2021

Opened 28 Jan 2021


The Northumberland Communities Together: Feeling Connected webinar brought people together from across the voluntary sector to discuss how the county approaches loneliness and social isolation. This webinar is designed to celebrate the amazing work that is being done by organisations and communities across Northumberland and how they can be supported to build on it. 
The webinar featured a keynote speech from Olivia Field, Head of Health and Resilience Policy at the British Red Cross, as well as a panel discussion with representatives from amazing local charities. 

Why your views matter

After watching the event, we are now asking for feedback from viewers about their insights into and experiences of loneliness and social isolation. Northumberland County Council will use this information to better understand how loneliness and social isolation are affecting our residents, how our communities and organisations are working to tackle these issues, and how their great work so far can be supported even further in the future.

What happens next

We will evaluate all feedback and use it to improve similar events we hold in the future.

In the meantime if you are anyone you know is struggling with loneliness as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, then the NCT team is here to help. They can help you find support or put you in touch with local community groups or organisations who can help.
