"I find it hard that if my friend is on their own and in distress I can’t meet up or give them a hug."

Listen to the story

"I can’t take a train journey across London to visit a relative. But even though most of my family live miles away, I have become closer to them.

They have had more time to message and speak on the phone. We’ve also had family bereavements which has brought us a lot closer.

I still feel uncomfortable using Zoom for close family and friends. But I have made new friendships over Zoom by doing training, conferences and joining organisations."
