Target

Help us end isolation and loneliness

Social isolation is a huge issue. It is crippling large parts of our society, with nearly one third of the population being affected by it at some point in their lives.

For Robert, social isolation gradually diminished his life and personality: “I never left my house and I felt no motivation to do anything.”

Britain is the loneliness capital of Europe and social isolation is playing a big part in it. We all know that loneliness affects older people, who find it harder to get out and about, but did you know that an incredible 80% of under 18s have also reported feeling lonely? Despite, and sometimes because of, social media, it seems the people of Britain are finding themselves more lonely and isolated than ever before.

Carr Gomm has had a significant impact in local communities in recent years. Despite the impact of our work, there is still much to do across Scotland.

 

We need your help.

 

What’s the aim? We need to raise at least £50,000 by 1st September 2017 to keep our community projects running.

How can we achieve it? We are looking for 100 people, or teams, to raise £500 each in the most creative, exciting and fun ways possible.

By signing up to the CG 100 campaign, you will be part of a fundraising community tackling social isolation and helping to build a more resilient Scotland.

Thank you for your support. Together, we can help combat social isolation and loneliness.

We support @scotgov intention to raise terms for social care workers, but worry about the unintended consequences of this announcement. https://t.co/XQ4ECsc5jy

Have you heard of social prescribing? It's an innovative new approach to building community connections and providing support through connecting with traditional health services.

Read about our Connections for Wellbeing service which is piloting social prescribing in Rothesay and Dunoon.

Fantastic to see the impact that our community projects are having on people's lives.

Our projects are funded entirely through fundraised income, so we couldn't do it without the support of all our fabulous fundraisers and donors...thank you!
