Social wellbeing

​Loneliness and social isolation can have a devastating impact on our health and wellbeing. Most of us will experience loneliness at some point in our lives, and almost all of us could be better connected with our community.

Having a healthy social wellbeing is not just about having a packed social calendar. It is about connecting with your community and having a strong support network and good friends. It is about knowing your neighbours and looking out for each other.
