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.

Prevention: Promoting wellbeing

Safeguarding adults: looking out for each other to prevent abuse

This video shows how good communication with older people can improve safeguarding. In residential care it is important that staff take the time to talk to residents and to listen to their concerns. Two community projects demonstrate how people are encouraged to look out for each other and to report any concerns.
