Tackling loneliness

Ruth Williams Freelance writer

Around one million people aged 65 and over in the UK report that they are often or always lonely, according to the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE). In response, the SCIE has published Tackling Loneliness and Social Isolation: The Role of Commissioners, which identifies and examines the evidence on possible interventions, provides examples of emerging practice across the UK, and considers what needs to happen to create a more conducive commissioning environment.
