Your local canal is a great place to connect with other people
I used to go out walking with my husband. After he died, Ann stepped in and I've been walking the canals with her ever since. Ann was my saviour.
Loneliness affects people of all ages and it's important for you to connect with other people to stay healthy. Building stronger social connections with your friends and family is good for your mental health. It can help you become more resilient which, in turn, can help you get through hard times more easily.
