The Derbyshire Trusted Befriending Network invites you to attend its high profile 'Turning the TIDE - Tackling Isolation and Loneliness in Derbyshire Event' taking place at the Assembly Rooms in Chesterfield on Wednesday 11th July 2018.

The event has two key aims. The first aim is to raise awareness of the very important issue of isolation and loneliness and to share the interesting findings of the recent research we commissioned into the impact and value of befriending services in Derbyshire. The second aim is to engage with a wide range of public and voluntary sector groups/organisations/individuals, who either commission or have responsibility for delivering services, to develop an action plan on how we all work together to tackle isolation and loneliness in Derbyshire going forward.

There will be a packed agenda, which we are currently finalising, that will include:

  • Keynote speaker on isolation and loneliness
  • The findings of the research
  • A panel of practitioners active in the field of addressing isolation and loneliness
  • First hand experiences of the difference that befriending support can make
  • Roundtable discussions on how we can all work together to tackle isolation and loneliness.

If you would like to attend then please download the booking form here and return to us. Places are limited so please book as soon as you can.
