An exploration of the research, rhetoric and issues surrounding loneliness

Loneliness can affect people at any time, and for some it can become an overwhelming problem. JRF and JRHT's action research programme 'Neighbourhood Approaches to Loneliness' looks at how a neighbourhood as a whole can support those who live with loneliness.

This paper:

  • defines loneliness;
  • explores how lonely people can be identified and engaged; and
  • outlines research and projects that could inform the Neighbourhood Approaches to Loneliness programme.
