Lily Services

Lily is a service from the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk that helps adults in west Norfolk develop friendships and engage in our community.

Lily Loneliness & Social Isolation Service

Norfolk County Council has commissioned services across the county to help tackle loneliness and social isolation.

The services offer 1-to-1 support to adults (18+) whose loneliness is the primary issue affecting their health & wellbeing.  Clients are supported to:

  • Access social activities, volunteering opportunities, community services and assets
  • Identify and overcome barriers that prevent them becoming connected
  • Reconnect with family & friends and make new connections in their community.

The services can also form part of a wider package of support for individuals where loneliness is a symptom of other more complex challenges, such as caring responsibilities, mental or physical ill health or debt.

Lily works with four charity partners to provide one to one support to clients. 
Our charity partners are: 

  • Norfolk and Waveney Mind
  • West Norfolk Carers
  • Family Action
  • West Norfolk Befriending
