WELCOME TO COMMUNIBOX DORSET

Reducing Loneliness and Social Isolation in Bournemouth, Poole and across Dorset

CommuniBox is a non-profit service that is connecting people with the groups, services, activities and more that Dorset has to offer. Delivering boxes to those who are either excluded from social media and internet, causing a lack of accessible information or those who have experienced changes in life which have left them disconnected and would benefit from a box of filled with relevant information to save them searching for themselves. We hope to reduce loneliness and isolation across Dorset. 

 

HOW IT WORKS

Simple & easy to support locally.

By donating a box for only £3.99 you will enable us to deliver that box to a member of the local community who will benefit from its contents. All boxes reach only people locally here in Poole and Bournemouth. 

They may then join a new social group like a gardening club, walking group or coffee morning. They will find contact details for services like Citizens Advice, Samaritans, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service and Live Well Dorset. Along with this important information they will receive interesting local history, samples from local producers and will be able to enter competitions all without the need for social media and internet access.

If you know someone who would benefit from receiving a box, please feel welcome to add them to our referral list. We will then send a box to them when we reach them on the list. The more people on our list, the easier it is for us to attract funding and other benefits so please go ahead. 

 
 

ABOUT COMMUNIBOX

Why do we do what we do?

After completing a recent survey, we found that 68% of people felt uninformed on things that were happening locally; Social groups, clubs, walking groups, services, important information and more were found not to be reaching those who could really benefit from the information. 

A concerning number of 40% of people surveyed felt the affects of loneliness a few times a month and a staggering 25% felt loneliness every day.

We are working towards tackling loneliness and social isolation at source. Life changes such as becoming a carer, bereavement or even moving house can cause people to become dissconected.
