    The Psychology of Loneliness

    Ready Friends is delighted to announce that Dr Kalpa Kharicha, Head of Innovation, Policy and Research from the Campaign to End Loneliness will be our keynote speaker, presenting ground breaking new research into the psychology of loneliness and the new CTEL training programme.

    We will also hear about the 2020/21 Winter Wellness Programme which provides essential information on what support, events and activities are available in Reading for people facing loneliness or needing a range of other kinds of help with shopping, advice, prescriptions, transport and household essentials.
