The Campaign pays tribute to Jo Cox MP and her work to develop a National Commission on Loneliness.

Director, Marcus Rand, said: “Jo was amazing. Within the space of just a few weeks, with a sharp brain, kind heart and unstoppable energy, she had mobilised groups and individuals to come together to take on the issue of loneliness with a new idea – a high impact Commission on Loneliness. That was her innovative way of helping us achieve our goal.

“Her passion for the issue was infectious. It moved us all. We and all her colleagues in Westminster must continue her great work. She would have wanted that – for us all to continue and to put an end to chronic loneliness.”

Marcus Rand’s comments contributed to an article in the Yorkshire Post in recognition of her efforts to curb chronic loneliness.
