Hidden citizens: how can we identify the most lonely older adults?

In 2013, the Campaign to End Loneliness consulted over 100 frontline service providers about what they needed to improve their support.

Nearly half said they wanted a tool or information that could help them to identify people experiencing – or at risk of – loneliness. This report explores what was already known in both research and practice about identifying people experiencing loneliness. It looked at current approaches to identifying loneliness and searched for insights into how services can improve their outreach and support.
