The Wolfpack Project are ambitious about reducing loneliness in younger people & adults!
We’ve already helped lots of people across Nottingham so far, but we need your support to help us grow, reach more people and really start kicking loneliness where it hurts! Your invaluable support will help us reach more people like Chris:
Chris (29) moved from his hometown to Nottingham to be closer to his partner.
‘I moved to Nottingham to be closer to my partner and found myself completely isolated as I just didn’t know anyone else in the area. As my partner works all week, and as I don’t yet have a job, I found myself alone all of the time. I felt lonely and like a prisoner at home.’
His partner contacted the Wolfpack Project as Chris was becoming increasingly isolated and lonely. Chris lacked confidence, interaction with others and the social skills to be able to meet new people.
The Wolfpack Project met with Chris to better understand how he was feeling, what his interests were and what he would like to happen to start to feel less lonely. As Chris loves walking, a Wolfpack Project Buddy went out with Chris to explore the parks in his local area. Not only did this help Chris familiarise himself with the area, but helped him build his confidence and make a new connection in Nottingham. Since then, Chris has had weekly calls with his Buddy, been for a walk in his local area and is starting to meet others for a coffee!
‘The Wolfpack Project has helped me to regain my confidence and to feel less isolated and alone. I now have someone to talk to and to do things with again’
We’re hoping to raise £1500 for the next phase of supporting more people. The money will help us recruit more Buddy’s and to set up 'Wolfpack' social groups to bring even more people together. Please donate what you can and help us to support more people like Chris!
