Can a neighbourhood approach to loneliness contribute to peoples’ wellbeing?

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation found that “community activism of this kind (neighbourhood approaches to loneliness) can contribute to the well-being of people at risk of or experiencing loneliness.

“Local people can play a central role in this activity and such involvement can, in turn, enhance community well-being.”

The Foundation’s review of its pilot action research programme is available online and includes tips for future development, shared learning from the programme and implications for commissioners and policy-makers.
