Here's how you can combat loneliness and isolation 

Become a Pen Pal and connect with someone who lives alone 

Sometimes the smallest gestures can make the biggest difference to someone's life.

Pen Pals is an initiative to help ease loneliness and improve the lives of anyone who is adjusting to spending more time at home.

Whether you want to exchange handwritten letters, emails, or phone calls, regular contact is the easiest way to combat loneliness and make friendships along the way.

Get a furry friend

Spending time with a pet releases endorphins. Endorphins have a calming effect and reduce levels of stress.  Having pets around are a great way to incorporate exercise into your day. They give you the chance to socialise with other people on walks or in groups and of course, they are great for a cuddle!
