It’s important during the cold winter months connect with other people. Good relationships are important for your mental wellbeing. They can help you to build a sense of belonging, provide an opportunity to share positive experiences and give emotional support.
Check in on neighbours, family and friends to see how they are.
Why not try taking up a new hobby as a way to meet new people.
There are a range of support groups and local community groups. Local community centres and community magazines will often have details of groups and activities running in your local area.
Another great way to stay connected is to get out and volunteer in your local community. It’s also a good way to make a difference in the community – especially during difficult times like these. There are lots of different opportunities available and you’ll benefit too.
