Tackling loneliness and social isolation: the role of commissioners

Part of Prevention and wellbeing

With one million people aged 65 and over in the UK reporting they are often or always lonely, few would refute the need to tackle this issue. However, loneliness and social isolation are conditions that are difficult to identify, complex to address and hard to resolve. The evidence base for interventions to address the problems of loneliness and social isolation is emerging but inconclusive at this stage.

Preventing loneliness and social isolation: interventions and outcomes

Part of Prevention and wellbeing

This research briefing provides a summary of the research knowledge into the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of services to prevent social isolation and loneliness. The briefing lists key interventions in three groups: one to one interventions, group services, and wider community engagement. It then discusses the outcomes of interventions in the following areas: social isolation, reducing loneliness, health and wellbeing, health service use, people's views on the interventions, organisational implications, implementing effective interventions, and cost and cost-effective interventions. Existing gaps in the research evidence are also highlighted.
