Loneliness and isolation are high-priority issues in Wales, reported to affect 1 in 5 adults across the whole population. How can we work better with local communities to improve their capacity to tackle these issues and improve health outcomes for all ages? In doing so, how can we ensure that marginalised groups, including those in more rural areas or in poorer financial circumstances, are not left behind?
On 6 March, join Tempo to explore how these challenges can be addressed through increasing participation in communities and building voluntary sector capacity and resilience. The event will feature a panel discussion and will be followed by a short Q&A. Book your place

NEW report on Tempo’s work in health & social care
If you are unable to join us for Activating Communities for Health, take a look at our new report summarising our work in health and social care. In 2018, Time Credits were nominated for three health and social care awards. Evaluation results show that for our health & social care focused work:
- 61% of surveyed participants reported an improved quality of life
- 31% reported improved physical health
- 37% felt more able to manage their own health & wellbeing following participation in Time Credits.
This report was produced in partnership with evaluation partners Apteligen, and highlights our outcomes in areas where we have worked directly with health and social care services, including in social prescribing, homelessness, mental health and substance use/recovery.
