The Power of One
We can often feel overwhelmed with the issue of loneliness, and like we can’t do much to help. However, the truth is we can ALL make a difference in some way, to someone else. Linking Lives Uk’s one-hour Power of One webinar is a FREE resource designed to inspire and equip individuals from all walks of life to make a positive difference in just one other person’s life. The toolkit is unpacked and then sent out to all webinar attendees afterwards too. To find out more and to book on to one of the webinars, please visit www.linkinglives.uk/power-of-one/.
