Isolation might be saving us from contracting COVID-19 but its effect on our mental health and overall wellbeing is of grave concern to those who know the negative impacts of loneliness.

That’s why Be Someone For Someone has started the ‘Let’s 5 Loneliness’ campaign, to give people practical ways to tackle loneliness head-on before it has a chance to cause long-term problems.

You can get online and connect through social media, email, gaming apps and online communities like the Feros Care Virtual Social Centre. Also make a five-minute phone call a part of your daily routine, to at least one person each day.
