Measuring loneliness

This online survey will measure the prevalence and severity of social isolation and loneliness in the general population in England.

Findings will be used to generate a ‘heat map’ that can be used to develop possible interventions that could help tackle social isolation and loneliness.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers based at Imperial College London.
