Social isolation

Ruth Williams Freelance writer

The Scottish Government is developing a national strategy to tackle social isolation and loneliness and has launched a consultation as part of the process. The draft strategy is aimed at realising a ‘vision’ in which no one is excluded from participating in society. It also defines concepts of social isolation and loneliness, sets out how communities can be empowered to lead on tackling these issues, highlights the government’s work in this area, and supports discussions among organisations and individuals about what they need to do.
