Armed Forces Covenant Fund: Tackling Loneliness
In early 2020, the Trust ran a consultation to discover how important it was to reduce social isolation and improve integration and engagement with provision, within the Armed Forces community.
Their consultation highlighted loneliness as a major factor of social isolation. It can affect people of all ages and from all backgrounds. The Tackling Loneliness programme will address this challenge by targeting specific groups within the Armed Forces community who are traditionally harder to reach.
