Work Programme

In accordance with previous practice, Scrutiny Committees are requested to review the forthcoming business (previously circulated) and determine which items are to be included in the Work Programme. The Work Programme is also available on the Council’s website at

http://democracy.devon.gov.uk/mgPlansHome.aspx?bcr=1 to see if there are any specific items therein it might wish to explore further.   

 

The Committee has received the following request for consideration:

 

(a) The Health and Wellbeing Board at its meeting on 11 April 2019 considered a Report from the Chief Officer for Communities, Public Health, Environment and Prosperity providing an update on the ’12 days, 12 ways to combat loneliness’ campaign which ran in December 2018, aimed at raising awareness and supporting community members to identify and address the signs of loneliness.

 

The campaign featured short films which were promoted through social media to raise awareness of the issue of loneliness over the festive period, reflected in the campaign title ’12 days, 12 ways to combat loneliness’.  The films were themed around the five ways to wellbeing to highlight ways in which loneliness could be combated through social connection, being active, taking notice, lifelong learning and giving to others.  The overall reach of the messages was 791,000, with 178 shares of all videos and 146 likes. 

 

In other developments, Living Options Devon (LOD) launched the ‘Time To Talk’ project (www.livingoptions.org/supporthelp/time-talk), which aimed to tackle isolation and loneliness amongst disabled people and deaf people.  The project tackled the problem of isolation and loneliness in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay by providing a variety of services which were funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

 

The Board resolved ‘that Devon’s Loneliness Campaign update Report be noted and that the Health and Adult Care Scrutiny Committee be invited to assess the effectiveness of the local health and care systems response to loneliness’.
