Event details

There are 1.2 million chronically lonely older people in the UK. Since The Campaign to End Loneliness was launched in 2011, it has become a large national force raising the issue of loneliness in older people.

The Campaign comprises a network of national and regional organisations, as well as individual people working together to do more to tackle loneliness in older age through community action, good practice, research and policy. The work being done by The Campaign is thematic and in that respect is unusual in the Older People’s sector.

The Campaign is governed by five partner organisations – Age UK Oxfordshire, Independent Age, Manchester City Council, Royal Voluntary Service and Sense, and is funded by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Tudor Trust, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, John Ellerman Foundation and Big Lottery Fund.
