A connected society: a strategy for tackling loneliness
Laying the foundations for change.
This strategy sets out the approach to tackling loneliness in England. It marks a shift in the way we see and act on loneliness, both within government and in society more broadly.
It builds on the work of many organisations and individuals over the years, and is government’s first major contribution to the national conversation on loneliness and the importance of social connections. This strategy is an important first step; government is also committed to long-lasting action to tackle the problem of loneliness.
