About the event

We would like to invite young people across Scotland to take part and share their thoughts and experiences! You will have the opportunity to meet with other young people and those working with a focus on tackling youth loneliness; share your views on what needs to be done both now and in the future; and connect with those who share an ambition to tackling loneliness with young people in Scotland!  

This is a great opportunity for you to share your views or own personal experience about a topic that has had a massive impact due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This also gives young people the opportunity to better understand what loneliness is and what support is available across local communities and wider. 

You will receive a £10 voucher for participating.
