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 to End Loneliness has worked with over 50 organisations, researchers and older people in our Learning Network to develop information and advice on choosing and using a scale to measure the impact of your services on loneliness.
We’ll be running a series of workshops and webinars throughout 2015 to help services and organisations to learn more about measuring the impact of loneliness interventions. Keep an eye on the Events section of the homepage, or sign-up to the Campaign to End Loneliness to receive email invitations directly into your inbox.
We’d like to encourage anyone delivering services, support or activities for older people to start measuring the difference they are making to loneliness.
If you’re already doing this, let us know how you’re doing this and what you’d recommend. Email us if you:
- Can help us write a case study about your evaluation on this webpage
- Can present at a Campaign event about how you measure the difference you’re making to the lives of older people experiencing loneliness
- Invite someone from the Campaign to End Loneliness to present to your staff or volunteers about choosing or using a loneliness scale
- Share this guidance, or this one-page summary of four different loneliness scales, with your colleagues or local professionals
