Community group awarded Pride in Medway Award for tackling loneliness

ITV Meridian's report is by Charlotte Wilkins. She's been speaking to Co-ordinator, Shila Jassal and participants, Julie Myan, Brian Holmes, Michael Burke, Narendra Patel and Mary Treasure.

A group that was started in Medway during lockdown to help combat loneliness has won a Pride of Medway Award. The Let's Get Chatty service has grown in popularity and is continuing to help people who may feel isolated.  It started as a one-to-one befriending service at the start of the pandemic. Now,  Let's Get Chatty has around 70 members and many meet for regular get-togethers, like today's walk around Capstone Park in Chatham.

MARR's Aims:
