        West Sussex County Council has commissioned various services and activities which aim to tackle social isolation and loneliness.

        Services have been set up to support vulnerable residents who are at risk of loneliness. These include services supporting individuals to join activities in their local area, directing individuals to appropriate services that meet their needs, or arranging for some company or a chat with regular visits from a volunteer, as well as providing various activities in centres and local community venues. All services are universally accessible, but are mostly utilised by older people in West Sussex.

        Experience and emerging evidence tells us that by keeping somebody active within their local community (whatever they might perceive that to be) means that people are less likely to functionally decline and therefore remain independent for longer. Research shows that loneliness has a comparable impact on our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. It also increases our risk of developing chronic conditions, like depression and dementia.

        Further information regarding the services can be found here: http://www.westsussex.gov.uk/living/social_care_and_health/adults_looking_for_support/help_to_live_at_home.aspx
