Our Campaign To End Loneliness
Our Campaign to End Loneliness is an ambitious one and something which cannot be achieved overnight or without further support and investment, but it is something that we believe in passionately. Funds raised will enable the charity to continue with its campaigning work in relation to the mental health and wellbeing of older people.
An Unspoken Health Challenge
Loneliness is one of the great unspoken health challenges and can increase the risk of death in older people by 26%. Research published in PLOS Medicine finds that loneliness is a stronger risk factor for death than physical inactivity and obesity.
