Campaign to End Loneliness

Campaign to End Loneliness

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:30

Over 70% of people in Cambridgeshire have suffered with loneliness

  • Over 70% of people in Cambridgeshire have suffered with loneliness
  • The Campaign to End Loneliness says that the stigma of loneliness is isolating thousands of older people in Cambridgeshire as it launches work in area
  • 9 in 10 people in Cambridgeshire believe loneliness in older age is now 'more likely than ever'
  • Over 80% of over-65s in Cambridgeshire say they would find it hard to admit to feeling lonely because they do not want to be a burden to others
  • The Campaign and its partners invite local communities and people to get involved with free discussions on loneliness, and how Cambridgeshire can tackle it

● The Wisbech discussion on loneliness is on Monday 16 October, 10.30am at The Queen Mary Centre

The Campaign to End Loneliness has revealed that over 70% of people in Cambridgeshire have suffered with loneliness. 9 in 10 people in Cambridgeshire believe loneliness in older age is more likely than ever - with 60% saying that admitting to loneliness is difficult.

This research comes as the Campaign launches the first phase of its work to tackle loneliness in Cambridgeshire. The Campaign to End Loneliness, in partnership with Cambridgeshire Older People's Enterprise (COPE) and Care Network Cambridgeshire, is hosting a series of free discussions on loneliness around Cambridgeshire. All members of the community are invited to come along to learn more about loneliness, and how Cambridgeshire can tackle it. The Campaign is supported with National Lottery funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Andy Nazer, Campaign Manager for the Campaign to End Loneliness, said:

"We are thrilled to be bringing the Campaign to End Loneliness to Cambridgeshire. There is some great work happening to tackle­­­­ loneliness amongst older people – and we are delighted to be part of this. But, as our research shows, there is still much to do to end loneliness, thanks to the sheer scale of the problem in Cambridgeshire. The health impacts of loneliness are devastating; it is as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and worse for you than obesity. Most worrying, however, is the widespread view more likely than ever - that loneliness is inevitable. We're here to challenge that.

"We're hosting a series of free informal discussions to find out what we can do to push back against loneliness in Cambridgeshire. We are inviting anyone with an interest in older people and loneliness to join us - including all older people, carers, community and faith groups that work with older people, and members of the health and statutory sectors. We will be assessing loneliness in the area, and working to find solutions. We want to break down that stigma of loneliness – a stigma that means 80% of older people in Cambridgeshire fear admitting to being lonely. And, with the majority of our communities wanting to address the loneliness epidemic, we know that we can do this. Together, we can end loneliness."

David Bailey, Cambridgeshire Older People's Enterprise (COPE) said:

"Loneliness has a devastating impact on the lives of older people in Cambridge and the County, and tackling it must be a priority. COPE believes that loneliness and isolation should not be seen as an inevitable part of growing older. COPE is delighted to partner with the Campaign to End Loneliness on this free series of discussions that kick-start the local campaign to push back against loneliness."

come along and make your mark between 10.00am & 1.00pm during the Family Fun Day.

more events will happen in Wisbech - see Tim Mann's website for more information

'Crowded Room Wisbech'

Celebrating Our Community

The 'Crowded Room' project is a truly collaborative process which uses contemporary art practice to celebrate the importance of the individual and their place in the community. Tim Mann, the artist, uses different aspects of the human form to record an individual's presence within a large-scale portrait. The resulting work of art demonstrates that whilst each participant is different, in terms of appearance and character, as humans we are all integral to the world and are fundamentally all the same.

Tim also creates additional works of art during a 'Crowded Room', using participant's hands, markers or counters to complement the main portrait.

Tim's ambition is to take the 'Crowded Room' project into different areas of Wisbech to celebrate each individual and their place within a community. He recognises that, whilst everyone has somewhere that they call home, sometimes circumstances dictate that they have to move and become part of an alternative community, whether on a temporary or permanent basis.

'Crowded Room Wisbech'

Celebrating Our Community

The 'Crowded Room' project is a truly collaborative process which uses contemporary art practice to celebrate the importance of the individual and their place in the community. Tim Mann, the artist, uses different aspects of the human form to record an individual's presence within a large-scale portrait. The resulting work of art demonstrates that whilst each participant is different, in terms of appearance and character, as humans we are all integral to the world and are fundamentally all the same.

Tim also creates additional works of art during a 'Crowded Room', using participant's hands, markers or counters to complement the main portrait.

Tim's ambition is to take the 'Crowded Room' project into different areas of Wisbech to celebrate each individual and their place within a community. He recognises that, whilst everyone has somewhere that they call home, sometimes circumstances dictate that they have to move and become part of an alternative community, whether on a temporary or permanent basis.
