Loneliness and Covid-19
We’re trying to reach anybody who might like to contribute something, and we’d like to hear from a range of perspectives, including people who may have experienced loneliness themselves, as well as people who might provide a service/support to potentially vulnerable groups. Contributions could be through poems, songs, paintings, stories, sketches, videos, letters or a few brief notes – any format is welcome. You can browse our first submissions and get involved through the website whenever you’re ready.
We hoped this might be of specific interest to U3A, and we would be extremely pleased if any of your members wanted to submit something to our scrapbook. I also wondered if you might have contacts or networks who could help raise awareness of the project? If you do, would you be comfortable circulating it? I’ve attached a press release with further info and some website artwork, and please find below a few suggested tweets/social media announcements if you’d like to share it online and would find this useful (but feel free to write your own!).
As we note on the site, anonymous and offline/postal contributions are all welcome. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
