Your pledge will help reduce loneliness and build stronger communities local to you.
Onside believes that if each of us makes a small change we can reduce the levels of loneliness in our community.
What pledge will you make? You might choose to....
Connect with your family – Pledge to switch off the TV each week and take time to listen and really understand. You can feel lonely in your own home.
Connect with people living alone – your neighbour, relative/friend. Pledge to pop in, run an errand, simply call every week.
Connect with your community – Pledge to give your time, volunteer and get involved supporting local people. Onside have lots of opportunities!

Loneliness and isolation is growing in Worcestershire.
Did you know loneliness poses a greater threat to health as smoking and obesity. Loneliness is linked to poor mental health, increased risk of high blood pressure, dementia and cardiovascular disease.
How Onside helps people connect with the community We can all feel alone……For a person with learning difficulties, a disability or mental ill health being on your own can be an easier option or the only option. Onside provides individual support to help each person to gain the confidence and encourage individuals to reconnect with their community.
