Loneliness Keith Swanick 18.12.17.jpeg.001

Last week I formally requested that the Government move to establish a Loneliness Taskforce or a Loneliness Commission. We all have our part to play in tackling loneliness, but Government and the state agencies play an important role.

My letter to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said, ‘The nature and remit of such a Loneliness Taskforce or Loneliness Commission would be for Government to set out, but it should be practically based, focussed and time-specific. This would be to complement the incredible work of NGO’s already in this area.’
