Loneliness resource pack

A set of resources to help individuals, groups, communities and neighbourhoods take a closer look at – and to reduce – loneliness.

Joseph Rowantree Foundation and JRHT's Neighbourhood approaches to loneliness has been a three-year action research programme exploring and identifying what makes us feel lonely where we live and work and what we can all do about it – personally and professionally.

This resource pack brings together the lessons and experiences from the programme and includes:
•Living with loneliness? – a four-page summary of the causes of loneliness, with infographics;
•Let's talk about loneliness – a four-page summary of ideas and actions to reduce loneliness, with infographics;
•Neighbourhood approaches to loneliness: our stories – a collection of case studies from some of the people involved;
•Working with your community to address loneliness – top tips from our external evaluators;
•Can do – guidance and tips for negotiating community action;
•How you can reduce loneliness in your neighbourhood (the process);
•Let's talk about loneliness session plans – five one-hour group work sessions to get you thinking and talking about loneliness.
•Lets talk about loneliness – a short film featuring interviews with the communities involved in our research
