Laura Alcock-Ferguson, Executive Director of the Campaign to End Loneliness, said:
“Today, the Campaign to End Loneliness celebrates the life of Jo Cox. Jo understood that loneliness is not inevitable – a core belief of the Campaign that informs all of our work.
“We are proud members of the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness, and will continue to work hard to bring about an end to loneliness in the UK. By encouraging practical action to tackle loneliness, we can take forward Jo’s legacy: that there is no issue that is too hard, or too complex, to take action on. Like Jo, the Campaign to End Loneliness believes in a better world, and that everybody who wants meaningful connections in older age should be able to have them.”
