Gedling MP supports local charity helping young people who are experiencing loneliness during lockdown


Gedling MP Tom Randall has shown his support for a local charity helping support young people who may be experiencing loneliness during lockdown.

Mr Randall accompanied Damien Reynolds, a Gedling resident who has set up the Wolfpack Project, to deliver wellbeing packs to residents in Carlton and Netherfield.

The support packs have been created as research revealed that during lockdown, young adults are almost three times more likely to experience loneliness.

Damien said: “One of the feelings millions of us are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic is loneliness. In our combined efforts to stay safe and save lives, our usual ways of seeing family, friends or familiar faces, no longer exist for many.”

“The Wolfpack Project have for the last year helped support 100+ young adults across Gedling & the wider Nottingham area through a Buddy Scheme of one-to-one and group support. Due to COVID-19, we are in unprecedented and challenging times that make it more difficult than ever to reach isolated young adults.”

“The Wolfpack Project have launched a campaign to provide 100’s of individuals who are most at risk, with their own ‘Wellbeing Wolf-Pack’; containing self-care items, puzzles, healthy drinks/snacks, tips around positive mental health/mindfulness and the means for those individuals to access added support.”

“We’re proud to continue to reduce loneliness and isolation for young adults across Nottingham!”
