Market Engagement Event: Loneliness and Social Isolation

As part of wider changes to housing related support, Norfolk County Council is holding a market engagement event to discuss proposals for a service to help combat loneliness and isolation in Norfolk.

The impact of loneliness and social isolation is significant. Norfolk Public Health estimates that there are 38,000 lonely people in Norfolk aged 65+, with more who are lonely through isolation caused by physical or mental health problems at any age. This is an opportunity for potential providers to meet and discuss how they might work together to provide the services as a consortium to ensure that all specialist aspects of the service can be provided in a joined up manner.

For more information about the proposed service click here.

To book a place, click here and register on Norfolk County Council's procurement system, express an interest in the opportunity (NCCT41483) and send correspondence through the system letting NCC know who plans to attend. Places are limited to two per organisation.
