Letters Against Loneliness

Help reduce loneliness and isolation during the Coronavirus pandemic

Write letters, send postcards and drawings to our service users in homelessness hostels and accommodation

At The Wallich, we have been overwhelmed by the kindness shown by communities across Wales, during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Whilst everyone is experiencing their own difficulties and having to adjust to this new normal, we are hyperaware of the effect that this pandemic is having on the physical and mental wellbeing of our service users.

With many people we support now in accommodation, where they largely have to isolate in their rooms, we want to ensure that nobody is being left to face this crisis alone.

How can I get involved?

Whether you want to write a one-way heartfelt letter, write a small note to show solidarity or draw a masterpiece, we’d love for you to send anything that will bring a smile to the recipient.

Items can be sent to both our frontline workers and our service users to show support and empathy.

Letters Against Loneliness is available to all 24 of our critical services across Wales.

Why take part?

There has been a lot of talk about how fortunate we are, to be living in a digital age, video calls at our fingertips and despite many individuals being in isolation, connections between friends, families and work colleagues are becoming stronger.

However, for many of our service users, access to the internet or a device isn’t always as simple compared to other households.

Help us reduce loneliness when individuals are disconnected from society during isolation.

You can make a difference to someone experiencing homelessness in Wales.

Thank you for your continued support during these truly challenging times.
