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.
