Health and Loneliness Roadshows 2015

The Health and Loneliness Roadshows will bring together health and social care professionals in all 14 Health Board areas of Scotland throughout 2015 in a discussion of the impacts of loneliness on health and, by consequence, on health and social care services.

These two-hour lunchtime workshops* will also allow participants to explore the measures which, working in partnership with the voluntary sector, they can adopt to address it within their professional spheres of influence. Representatives of local befriending services will showcase their own work on health and loneliness and participants are invited stay for a "networking half hour" at the end of the workshop to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, get to know more about these services and the potential offered by befriending for enhancing the quality of support available to vulnerable and isolated people within their health board area.

*Lunch is not provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own. The Roadshows are free of charge to all participants.
