The Local Government Association (LGA), in partnership with the Campaign to End Loneliness and Age UK, have produced Combating Loneliness; A Guide for Local Authorities.
Over 9 million people in the UK across all adult ages – more than the population of London – are either always or often lonely. Half a million older people go at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all.
If you know someone is lonely or socially isolated, they may be vulnerable, or open to forms of abuse, such as mate crime. There is help and resources available to them. The HSAB campaign for 2019 addresses loneliness and social isolation.
