Research evidence shows overwhelmingly that social loneliness affects some groups in society more than others and is particularly acute for those who face multiple forms of disadvantage. This suggests that loneliness may be unevenly distributed in ways that reflect and interact with broader social and structural inequalities.

The Wales Centre for Public Policy (WCPP) – in partnership with Professor Manuela Barreto (University of Exeter) Professor Pamela Qualter (University of Manchester) and Dr David Doyle (Amsterdam University Medical Centers) – published a major review of research on the nature and causes of loneliness inequalities.

This talk will discuss the review findings and the compelling case it provides to end loneliness by focusing on the role that policy and public services play in making our societies and communities more inclusive and equal.
