Our last event....Combating Isolation and Loneliness Through Partnership

Sixty three people attended our conference in Sheffield on 15th November to consider how, together, we can combat isolation and loneliness amongst older people.

Laura Ferguson, the Director of the Campaign to End Loneliness set the scene explaining the impact loneliness can have on our health. Lonely individuals are at higher risk of hypertension, poor sleep, the onset of disability and poor self-rated physical health. Loneliness is also detrimental to mental health.

Lorraine Jackson, Senior Policy Officer with the Department of Health, said that health and social care are prioritising prevention work, keeping people independent in their own homes, but also in their communities.
