Make it standard practice for any employee to be allowed take one hour off work per month if they sign up to visit a 'lonely' person who would not normally get or talk to anyone
Why is this important?
If we can end loneliness with a little community spirit then this will lessen mental health issues down the line. This will have a positive affect on the NHS and community spirit in general. If someone knows they will get at least one visit a month it will give them something to look forward to.
