Episode 35: Loneliness is everybody’s business - interview with Councillor Aisha Cuthbert
Darren Weale interviews Councillor Aisha Cuthbert about Bromley's Tackling Loneliness Strategy.
Corrections from the audio - Aisha is Tackling Loneliness Champion, not Loneliness Champion, and the late MP involved in the initiative nationally was Jo Cox, not Jo Good.
Aisha explains her personal reasons for taking up this role, the importance of mental health, and talks about plans including Community Champions, a new directory, the Tackling Loneliness page, and the importance of Community Links Bromley. Bromley Well, Age UK Bromley and Greenwich, and the University of the Third Age (U3A) in Bromley are also discussed. As she says, though, "Loneliness is everybody's business."
