Leeds Jewish Welfare Board hosts a annual dinner to raise funds to support people suffering from social isolation .
LJWB focuses on the growing problems of loneliness and social isolation in the community. ‘At LJWB we are seeing an increasing number of people becoming socially isolated across all age groups’ said LJWB CEO Liz Bradbury.
Loneliness is also on the increase – how we perceive the number and quality of our social connections and our purposeful role in society has a significant impact on how we feel. Without the intervention of LJWB, 1 in 4 people in our community run the risk of becoming socially isolated.’
