JRF 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;
  • 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.
  • Can a neighbourhood approach to loneliness contribute to people's well-being?- a research evaluation of the loneliness program.
  • Neighbourhood approaches to loneliness: a briefing for local government - explaining what worked and links to further resources that could inform local authority policy and practice.
