No one should spend a lonely day in Norfolk if they don’t want to.
Thousands of people in Norfolk are lonely. Loneliness can cause poor health and even lead to premature death. It can make people vulnerable to scams and fraud and increase their reliance on public services.
But we also know that alleviating loneliness can help people lead independent, happier and healthier lives, for longer.
Staying at home... In Good Company is a campaign to help combat loneliness in Norfolk during lockdown.
When you’ve pledged, share your support on Twitter using #NoLonelyDay.
To find out more about loneliness and to get some inspiration for ways you can tackle it, visit Campaign to End Loneliness.

In Good Company is being run by over 20 voluntary, statutory organisations and public service providers. Find out more about them.
