Community helps us to feel connected, both to other people and the wider society. It is vital for emotional health and wellbeing. We are social beings and need to belong to groups in which we feel valued.
COVID-19 has prevented lots of community activities and gatherings from taking place but as things start to return to normal, think about ways you can involve yourself in your local community.
+ There are many ways people can belong to a community. For example; family, work, religion or hobbies. Why not think about joining a new group doing something you enjoy? There are many groups and activities free to the community in Suffolk. These vary from running and exercise, gardening, arts and crafts to walks or just having a cup of tea and a chat. To find out more, try searching in Suffolk InfoLink or ask in your local library. You may always want to consider volunteering. You can find out more about volunteering opportunities, here.
