APPG on Loneliness Inquiry Consultation

The APPG on Loneliness has launched a consultation to gather views and evidence on how to better tackle loneliness, and explore solutions to crucial but complex policy areas, including:
  • Designing and implementing ways to test the implications of government policies on loneliness
  • Translating national policy into local action through local authorities
  • Community infrastructure (including housing, transport and public spaces)
  • How to adequately fund the voluntary and community sector upon which social prescribing depends
We are interested in hearing from Government and arms-length bodies, MPs and peers, NHS stakeholders, businesses, councils, councillors, academics, voluntary and charity sector organisations and members of the public.

This survey should take you no more than 15-20 minutes to complete.
Please note you are NOT expected to answer all of the questions within the consultation. Please feel at liberty to answer as few or as many of the questions as you wish. You may save your response and return to the survey at a later stage.

The APPG on Loneliness will be holding oral evidence sessions in the Houses of Parliament later this year. Please indicate whether you would like to be considered for invitation to present to a panel of APPG officers in person at the end of the survey. This is not mandatory should you wish to remain anonymous.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Rasteen at the British Red Cross (

The deadline to submit your evidence is 11:59pm on 30 April 2020.
