Forum Central Feel Connected Event 4 Dec – Follow Up

/, PSI/Forum Central Feel Connected Event 4 Dec – Follow Up

Please find below links to the event report (including large print version) and presentation slides from the Feel Connected: Finding Ways Out of Social Isolation and Loneliness event held on Tuesday 4 December. If you require this information in an alternative format, please let us know.

Thanks to those of you that were able to attend – it felt really valuable to hear your experiences and insights on the impact of loneliness on disabled people.

For those that couldn’t make it, here’s some of the feedback from attendees:
“Really informative day”
“I have more awareness of limitations of hard of hearing people who attend clubs and activities”
“learnt a bit more about funding possibilities in Leeds – optimistic”
“The meeting was very good. Everyone is trying hard to support those who need it”

We hope to take forward some of the table discussion actions in the New Year, so do keep an eye on the Forum Central website and e-bulletin for up.

If you’d like to discuss any of the issues raised further or anything else related to our physical and sensory impairment work, contact our PSI Development Worker Lucy via lucy.graham@forumcentral.org.uk.
