Information about our LILY service that helps combat loneliness and social isolation in adults of all ages
What is Lily?
From 1 July 2018, our Lily service expanded to include everyone over 18, not just those in later years.
Lily provides a comprehensive range of support in west Norfolk to combat loneliness and social isolation in adults of all ages. The project is linked to the 'No Lonely Day' initiative, and encourages our residents to develop friendships and engage in their local communities.
Lily will also have a strong focus on community development, by:
- helping groups to arrange activities and encouraging volunteering
- providing community events and onsite information sessions
- providing support for employers, schools, and colleges
You can access Lily in a variety of ways:
