Tackling Loneliness Hub


Everyone working on loneliness is welcome to join the Tackling Loneliness Hub, an online community that we’re proud to have launched and run on behalf of the DCMS from April 2021 to March 2024.

Now representing over 850 professionals from over 600 organisations across the public, private, academic and charitable sectors, the Hub enables members to connect with others working to reduce loneliness in a safe and supportive space.

During our time running the Tackling Loneliness Hub, we shared research and practice insights from members through events, workshops, blogs, newsletters and co-working sessions. Thank you to everyone who made and continues to make the Hub such a welcoming and inclusive space. Join the Hub and be part of the community.
