A new service, PLUS (People Like Us), has recently been launched, designed to combat loneliness and create connections between people and their communities. The service is available to all adults who may feel alone or isolated. Trained volunteers will provide support to build confidence, develop social connections and become more active and engaged in their communities. At present the service is being adapted to provide telephone support, and make use of virtual technology, to keep in touch with people who may be particularly affected by this present crisis. To find out more, make a referral or to join the team of volunteers, call: 01905 27525 / 0748 531 2463 or email: plus@onside-advocacy.org.uk.
