You're still in Good Company
While the Government announcement on Sunday 10th May has not radically changed the guidance we are using to tackle the Coronavirus pandemic, and we continue to be using social distancing, it remains as important as ever to reach out to those who might need some company. There are more than 118,000 people living alone in Norfolk – and for those losing all of their usual contact with other people, it must be hugely challenging.
With this in mind Norfolk County Council has re-launched ‘Staying at home, but still In Good Company’. In Good Company was originally launched as a campaign in 2017 and provides Norfolk residents with information, help, opportunities and fun ideas to keep connected to others, while sticking to the social distancing guidelines.
In Good Company is about highlighting all the amazing work going on across Norfolk which is being done specifically to tackle loneliness . Over the coming weeks this will be highlighted via the campaign webpage, across social media platforms and as part of advertising with local media.
NSAB positively encourages everyone to support the campaign in whatever way you can. Perhaps by:
- providing some information about ways in which you are helping to tackle loneliness
- offering some case studies for our webpage to highlight volunteer or community heroes
- sharing and commenting on our social media posts, either on Facebook or Twitter
- being an advocate for the campaign – please tell your friends, colleagues and family about it and get them to spread the word!
The Eastern Daily Press (EDP) are running a series of advertorials for on the new campaign, click here for the latest advertorial.
