Compassionate Bath & North East Somerset

Compassionate Bath & North East Somerset
What We Do:
#CompassionateBanes is a grassroots movement to reduce social isolation and loneliness for everyone in Bath and north east Somerset.

9 million people in the UK say they are always or often lonely and we know that lacking social connections is a comparable risk factor for early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. It might surprise you to hear that young adults are more likely to feel lonely than older age groups.

#CompassionateBanes is a new grassroots movement that will train volunteer Community Connectors to help people of all ages find the support they need to break out of a cycle of isolation and loneliness. We are also bringing together people from the NHS, Council and local charities to work in a more joined up way.

We’d love to hear from compassionate people who want to make a difference in their community.
