In October 2018, Councillor Jaida Caliskan set up a new "Friendship Group" in Welham Green after she noticed that there were many people living in the area who were becoming increasingly isolated and who had little interaction with others in their community. This initiative has been hugely successful and has gone from strength-to-strength, with anything up to 60 people attending.
It is clear, though, that issues of isolation are not unique to Welham Green, so we're keen to build on Jaida's fantastic start and grow this initiative across the borough.
