Hampers for 200 residents suffering from loneliness and isolation


Copeland Borough Council say new support is available to residents who have suffered from loneliness and isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A spokesperson from the Council said: "Two hundred residents of all ages will benefit from two hampers each, in March, alongside be-friending and access to data enabled tablets.

"The health and wellbeing hamper will be gifted to residents who live on their own and struggle to socialise.

"The hamper will include a £50 voucher to help with utility bills, a therapeutic CD, and information relating to support services in their area.

"Residents will also receive a craft hamper filled with a mindfulness journal, sewing kits, crosswords and other items to keep them entertained.

"Digital devices will be made available for residents’ use, as a way to contact the befriending service and interact with others online. People can also call the befriending service if they do not wish to use a digital device." 

The Council are running the project in partnership with Copeland Age and Advice Service C.I.C and Skills4you. It is funded by Copeland Borough Council, Copeland Community Fund and Cumbria County Council.

Residents who feel they may benefit from such support are invited to get in touch with Copeland Age and Advice Service at referrals@caasteam.com or on 01946 552166.
