Why is this important?
People over 50 who volunteer or otherwise actively participate in their community tend to be happier as a result and tend to report both more and deeper relationships with others. Interacting with people around us is essential in helping prevent loneliness.
Age Better in Sheffield Neighbourhood Toolkit

Campaign to End Loneliness
A network of national, regional organisations and people working together through community action, good practice, research and policy which inspires thousands of organisations and people to do more to tackle loneliness in older age.
