LOCKDOWN & LONELINESS: We need a well-being strategy that includes everyone in Wales

Two years after hiring a Minister of Loneliness, people in the U.K. are  still lonely - MarketWatch

 

Responding to the news that people living alone in areas with additional restrictions may be able to meet another household indoors, Plaid Cymru Shadow Health Minister Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said,

“I have increasing concern for the welfare of those experiencing loneliness during periods of heightened restrictions – restrictions that now impact so many people in Wales.

 “I’m pleased that the welfare of people living alone is being addressed but I’d like to see a wider strategy taking into account all the information we now have on the impact of coronavirus and lockdown on well-being and mental health.

 “From the impact on our youngest children - including the effects of a disrupted education - right through to the impact on our elderly and most vulnerable who we know are more likely to suffer the effects of loneliness and isolation, we need a strategy that encompasses all of the Welsh population at this most challenging of times.”
