Scheme to target lonely people in the borough to go before council

Pilot scheme to target lonely people to be covered at meeting

Tara O'Connor

The action plan of a project to combat loneliness will be heard at a Big Society panel meeting tomorrow (Monday).

The Loneliness Project collaborates with charities, businesses and voluntary services to reach out to those likely to be lonely in the Royal Borough.

The panel will hear that by the end of November the project aims to ‘establish a communications plan’ with organisations including schools and parish councils.

The four wards identified as having the highest concentration of groups likely to be lonely were Eton Wick, Clewer South, Clewer North and Oldfield.

The identified wards will be used to implement a pilot local intervention scheme.

Plans are scheduled to be made by the end of November with ‘clear milestones, outcomes and success measures’.

The next steps will be mapping existing services available in the intervention areas and to promote events available within the services.

The Big Society panel will meet at 7pm at the Windsor Guildhall.
