OCF webinars 2021 – Countering the epidemic of loneliness
Wednesday 27 January @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
OCF monthly webinars return to Wednesday afternoons from 2pm to 3pm on Zoom. Our first webinar of 2021 is on the subject of loneliness and mental health. How can we make connections during lockdown?
The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing out the language of loneliness. ‘Self-isolation’ and ‘social distancing’ have become common terms, but they are all the more resonant for people who were already struggling with their mental health before this crisis, or who had already lost the social and emotional connections that gave them a sense of belonging.
2.00 Welcome chaired by CEO Adrian Sell, OCF
2.10 Spotlight on: Paul Cann OBE, Chair of the Campaign to End Loneliness
2.25 Making a difference: Rita Atkinson MBE, Trustee at Abingdon Damascus Youth Project
2.45 Over to you: Open Q&A
2.55 Wrap up
