Laura Alcock-Ferguson, Executive Director of the Campaign to End Loneliness, said:

“The Campaign to End Loneliness is saddened by the resignation of the Minister of Loneliness Tracey Crouch. Her personal commitment to tackling loneliness has given energy and urgency to this devastating issue affecting millions in the U.K. She has been a knowledgeable and passionate champion for the cause, both in this country and globally, and we have thoroughly valued working with her on the recently published loneliness strategy.

“We urge the Government to not lose momentum on loneliness and hope to see the new Minister in post swiftly. We looking forward to working with the new Minister of Loneliness and seeing a robust implementation of the loneliness strategy.”
