2nd June 2020



The Local Government Association (LGA) and Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH) have jointly produced this practical advice for Directors of Public Health and others leading the response to the loneliness and social isolation issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. It follows-on from their guidance about the public mental health impacts across the life course.

This guide can be useful for volunteering services within mental health trusts to plan ahead of how their volunteers can provide extra support to patients and staff.
