About the project

Combating Loneliness & Isolation with Volunteers in Europe (CLIVE) is a project funded by the European Solidarity Corps Programme that aims to combat the increasing loneliness that has emerged as a result of Covid lockdowns. Through combatting this loneliness, CLIVE aims to reverse the negative effects that prolonged isolation has had on social cohesion and people’s mental health. The project specifically aims to reverse this trend among groups who have been most affected by lockdown loneliness.

The project will positively affect the lives of the target groups as in their mental health as well as their social cohesion, lead to target groups experiencing new connections and forming positive social relationships, lead to target groups being able to identify their negative feelings and situations as well as knowing how to resolve them and boost social cohesion by integrating the target groups into the wider community.

The call for volunteers for this European Solidarity Corps in High Priority Areas funded project is now open! Young people between 18-30 years old from EVCCC’s countries Belgium, Italy, Malta, Poland and Portugal can take part in this volunteering experience focusing on combating loneliness and isolation.
