Healthwatch Devon – Help tackle Loneliness in Devon

What’s it all about?
The purpose of this meeting is to enable our community to review the findings of our loneliness project. Over 500 individuals and groups across Devon gave us their views and shared their experiences of loneliness. The results of our work will provide a community voice to help decision makers understand the impact of loneliness, how people are helping to overcome the problem and what people think are effective solutions. We want to help the Devon community understand what is happening and what can be put in place to help tackle this problem which has been highlighted nationally as well as locally. To find out more please visit the Health Watch Devon website.

Who is this event for?
This event is for our members and supporters, people who have participated in our project and commissioners and providers of health and social care services in Devon.

The event will be in workshop style and there are 60 free tickets. It will run from 10 am till 3 pm and more information about the day will be sent out in due course. We will ask you to reflect on the work the community has contributed to and give us your views for recommendations for providers and commissioners.

Paid parking is available on site at the front of County Hall (Topsham Road entrance) and you will need to go to the main reception desk to obtain an entry pass to the Coaver Club which is a short walk from the main entrance. People with mobility vehicles can obtain a vehicle pass to the door of the club and there is limited disabled parking at the hall. Please let us know if you need help with disabled parking.

A light lunch will be provided. Although this is a free event, we do ask that if you book and then subsequently cannot attend to let us know so as soon as possible so we can release the place to someone else.

Book on to the loneliness workshop through the Eventbrite website.
