Each district of Essex has a dedicated United in Kind Coach who will be working to reduce isolation and loneliness over the next two years.   Contact your local coach for help in starting activities in your own area, if you would like to volunteer as a Community Champion or if you know a person who would benefit from signposting to activities near them, that can help them to be better connected to their community.
