Theresa May announces new loneliness strategyTheresa May announces new loneliness strategy

The Prime Minister has launched a cross-sector loneliness strategy for England as part of the long-term plan for the NHS. GPs will be able to refer patients experiencing loneliness to community activities and voluntary services by 2023. Funding will be available for activities, like cookery classes, walking clubs and art groups.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will also provide up to £1.8 million to help local communities realise the potential of underutilised community spaces.

Postal workers will be encouraged to check on lonely people in a scheme with Royal Mail being piloted in Liverpool, New Malden and Whitby.
