Let’s Connect: Tackling loneliness and isolation in Lawrence Weston

Over 30 people attended Let’s Connect, an event held by LinkAge Network and Ambition Lawrence Weston earlier this month, looking at how we can all work together so no one should ever feel lonely.

The speakers and conversations at the event were diverse, emotional and engaging. A short video was also shown to highlight local peoples’ experiences of living in the area.

Everyone was given the opportunity to think about what “an ideal world” in Lawrence Weston would look like, how Ambition Lawrence Weston and residents could support the area, and most importantly what they could do to help.

From the event we hope to collect potential project ideas, and also encourage people to support groups to take those project ideas forward.

Tracy, North Bristol Community Development Coordinator at LinkAge Network, would like to say thank you to everyone who made the day possible, as well as to those who took the time to support the event.
