Join the Age UK Campaign to try and combat loneliness.
More than a million older people say they go for over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member.
Sign our petition asking the Government to take action to tackle this major problem affecting the lives of millions of older people.
We want local and national government to understand that older people’s loneliness really matters; that it’s a serious public health problem and not a normal part of ageing, and we want them to commit to take action with us to prevent and tackle it.
Unless we act, our rapidly ageing population means we’ll see ever greater numbers of lonely older people and, because loneliness undermines resilience, this also means more pressure on our already stretched NHS and social care services.
Please sign their petition here to support the campaign.
