Linking Lives UK are looking for trustees including a Chair of Trustees to join our existing board members as we plan for the future. We are particularly looking for those with the following experience, skills and passion:

  • Personal awareness of issues relating to loneliness and social isolation
  • Engagement and experience within the Christian faith sector across the UK

We are at a key stage in our development in addressing issues in relation to loneliness and social isolation nationally and we have set some ambitious targets for the coming year which include:

  • Establishing 5 ‘Two’s Company Befriending’ schemes
  • Delivering 24 training co curses for 500 volunteers operating in community settings
  • Running 12 monthly webinars focusing on loneliness and social isolation
  • Developing a nationwide presence Wales and Northern Ireland
  • Creating a national chaplaincy initiative
  • Developing two new service delivery models addressing loneliness.

As a Christian charity, we believe that God has created us to be in relationship with one another and as a result, loneliness is not part of His ideal design. One of our favourite verses in the Bible highlights this:

‘A defender of widows is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families’
