National Loneliness Awareness Week

In support of National Loneliness Awareness Week, NALC published 50 case studies demonstrating how local councils of all sizes are getting involved to help tackle loneliness, a problem which increases the likelihood of premature mortality by 26%. The case studies featured identify activity taken to counter loneliness amongst older and younger people, the unemployed and those with dementia, including managing community venues, organising events, providing community transport and social prescribing.
