As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, organisations across the country are working to tackle loneliness.
Loneliness was selected as the theme of this year’s campaign after research by the Mental Health Foundation found that one in four people feel lonely some or all of the time.
To coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week, we have pulled together a list of coffee mornings, lunch clubs and other social groups in Alfreton.
The Alfreton Friendship club meets at Alfreton Wesley Methodist Church, Nottingham Road, every Friday at 10am.
For different social activities and light refreshments.
