Community campaigns that matter.
Letters with Love have been personally delivered to residents of Brighton and Hove since the Coronavirus pandemic began.
Letters are being delivered to those most vulnerable to show that they remain in the hearts and minds of our community despite the social distancing measures. The Social Society organised the campaign as part of an ongoing effort to connect with those most isolated and vulnerable, who cannot easily access social media.
With over 51% of all people aged 75 and over living alone, The Social Society set out to reach out and offer support and connection with a hand written letter. With these figures now increasing due to the ongoing pandemic, we delivered letters to those in the community without a support network.
Toni Finnimore founder of The Social Society said:
"There are people in our community who have lost their ability to connect with others on a daily basis. Their usual outing to the shops, bakery or local coffee shop is no longer an option for many. This has an impact on most of us, but for those without friends or family the impact is huge"
To connect with and support the elderly and most vulnerable in our communities by sending them a letter with love. This can be in the form of a short poem a story or a verse, a paragraph or two of your favourite novel or simply a few words to say you care. Local children have decided to draw and post pictures and you can help too.
