ALONE has been working to fight against loneliness in older people since 1977. In collaboration with Sean Moynihan and his team in ALONE Ireland I have now established the Loneliness Taskforce, an initiative to coordinate a response to loneliness and social isolation in Ireland.
We are requesting suggestions and submissions from interested individuals, groups and other organisations to produce a set of recommendations for Government, state agencies and policy makers.
We want to fight back against loneliness. For more details, go to https://lonelinesstaskforce.com/
