  • Measuring your impact on loneliness in later life May 18, 2015

    Are you working to prevent or reduce loneliness in your community? Can you articulate the difference you are making to the lives of older people? We’re all working in an increasingly competitive funding environment, and we all need to be able to demonstrate, robustly, that we’re making a difference. Over the past year, the Campaign…

  • Loneliness across the life course May 13, 2015

    Loneliness is often, and rightly, perceived as a problem that can be particularly associated with those in later life.  Certainly, here at the Campaign, this is the issue that we are grappling with.  However, we are acutely aware that much less attention has been paid to how loneliness affects other age groups; a recent Big…

  • Want to learn more about loneliness, isolation and wellbeing? May 1, 2015

    “What is so fascinating about loneliness? For me, it’s about the degree to which loneliness is part of the human experience, its part of what makes us human…but increasingly the research agenda around loneliness has been very much focused on health consequences” Professor Christina Victor, Brunel University In mid-April, the NIHR School for Social Care…

  • Measuring your Impact on Loneliness in Later Life
    Tuesday 19th May 2015 at 14.00 - 17.00

    The Campaign to End Loneliness is pleased to invite you to the launch of new impact measurement guidance and training for organisations delivering services to people experiencing loneliness.

    In 2013, a survey of Campaign to End Loneliness supporter organisations over half said that they would value more support in evaluating their impact. Since then, the Campaign has worked with older people, service providers, commissioners and researchers to develop a practical and simple tool that can help you to measure the positive impact your work has by alleviating loneliness in older age.

    However, different circumstances do call for different types of tools and questions. So as we have also produced guidance on a range of resources including the De Jong Gierveld Scale, the UCLA Scale and some simple, single questions that could be used to measure your impact on loneliness.

    This launch event will:

    • Introduce the new Campaign to End Loneliness measurement tool
    •  Explain how to use a range of scales and questions to ask older people about loneliness over time
    • Provide training for staff in conducting a survey, sampling and scoring and analysing your results
