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

Published Dec 8th 2014

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.
