About us

We are the Campaign to End Loneliness. Loneliness affects people of all ages and backgrounds and touches the lives of millions. It causes real emotional pain and can impact on physical and mental health. It has an economic cost – in the additional health and care services that are needed by people who are lonely, and the missed contributions that people who are unable to connect could make in their communities.

Our work always puts loneliness first. This exclusive focus allows us to maintain a depth of understanding and expertise on loneliness and how it relates to other issues. We share this widely to stimulate positive impact. As a new policy area and an emerging field of practice, we play a valuable role in sharing practice and learning about loneliness, making change and ensuring organisations have more impact in real time.

After ten years of active campaigning, convening and creating change we are now looking beyond our initial scope of loneliness in later life. Covid-19 has crystallised the need for the Campaign to both inform the immediate response to loneliness during the pandemic and to ensure focus on this issue, in a context of competing priorities in the future. We have seen how the scourge of loneliness affects people of all ages. By bringing our unique sole focus on loneliness, we will be able to work with others to create right conditions, to develop the tools and to encourage the action that is needed to reduce the most harmful forms of loneliness – those that are deep, and chronic.
