SOCIAL CONNECTEDNESS

Connect Erewash

 

Derbyshire County Council have commissioned Erewash Voluntary Action to undertake some work to reduce isolation and loneliness in Erewash. - Our project is called Connect Erewash.


The funding was secured in response to "A Connected Society" a strategy that was launched following the death of MP Jo Cox. The website for more information is below.

We have been asked to work with communities and groups to look at things they might like to develop to help improve or reduce isolation in communities.


A steering group of interested partners was formed and has met a number of times. A questionnaire has been developed that can be used to collect people’s views about loneliness.
