PM launches first Government strategy on loneliness

On 15 October the Prime Minister Theresa May launched the first cross-Government strategy to tackle the very real problem of loneliness.


This strategy recognises the huge challenge we face with loneliness in our society and its implications on our health.

Loneliness affects people of all ages and backgrounds

From social prescribing to community activities, to teaching children about the importance of relationships in school, to postal workers checking up on lonely people on their patch – there are some big plans here: www.gov.uk/government/news/pm-launches-governments-first-loneliness-strategy


In Coventry we’re already up and running with our own social movement against isolation – Connecting for Good – funded by the Big Lottery.


Could you go a week without seeing or talking to anyone? Watch this film by the Campaign to End Loneliness to get a sense of what life is like for over half a million older people in the UK.
