Help us understand more about loneliness: participate in our Focus Groups

News from: Reading Voluntary Action

RVA are running a series of focus groups to understand more about how loneliness affects people in Reading. RVA are interested in hearing from a wide range of people and understand from research they have carried out that certain situations make it more likely that someone may be affected by loneliness.

In order to ensure discussion is focused, please sign up to one that is most relevant to your situation.
