This report is an update to the seminal report published jointly with Age UK in 2015, ‘Promising Approaches to reducing loneliness in later life’.
Five years on, thanks to the work of many organisations, there are government loneliness strategies in England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland has committed to developing one. The development of a framework approach to reducing loneliness helped local councils, commissioning bodies and service providers explore the best way forward to invest in, and run, loneliness interventions.
In 2020, the impact of Covid-19 has highlighted the importance of meaningful connections for us all. It was time to refresh this framework and look at what current promising approaches are.
The report includes thirty-three case studies drawn from across the UK.
