Tackling loneliness head on.
Through Church Urban Fund’s (CUF) programmes and partnerships we are working to tackle loneliness head on. We enable churches and communities to support those who are lonely.
The Together Network, a CUF initiative, is working in partnership with local services to create hundreds life-changing initiatives in local communities. These include community hubs, befriending schemes, lunch clubs, sports teams and more activities that invite people into forming friendships and foster a sense of community, hope and togetherness.
Another of our key programmes, Near Neighbours, helps to bring communities together across religious differences to form collaborative and trusting relationships, and our Places of Welcome initiative is formed of over 300 groups nationwide who provide a friendly face, a cup of tea and a conversation for whoever needs it.
Together, we can turn the tide on loneliness and isolation. So what are you waiting for? Raise Your Voices is a series of music-based events which raise awareness of the issue of loneliness and how we’re working to end it.
So, come on: Raise Your Voices, raise the roof, and raise lots of money for a fantastic cause this year – now that’s something to raise your voices about!
