The Reading Friends project gives opportunities for people who are vulnerable, isolated and at risk of loneliness to meet others, share their stories, make new friends and have fun. The RF’s project was originally aimed at reducing isolation in older people and has now been extended to include all age groups, particularly in light of the current covid-19 lockdown.
