Let’s Keep Meath Talking
What can you do?
Keep Meath Talking by reaching out to a neighbour. Smile, chat at a safe distance, make a friendly phone call or let them know your contact details. Family members, neighbours and friends can all play their part by recognising that even though we have to stay apart, we can still take the time to talk to each other and this can really reduce loneliness. Find out more about how we can combat loneliness at https://bit.ly/KeepMeathTalking #InThisTogether
