Are you working to prevent or reduce loneliness in your community?  Can you articulate the difference you make to the lives of older people?  We’re all working in an increasingly competitive funding environment, and we all need to be able to demonstrate, robustly, that we’re making a difference. Over the past year, the Campaign to End Loneliness has worked with over 50 organisations, researchers and older people to develop advice on choosing and using a scale to measure the impact of your services on loneliness. ‘They delighted to share with you a new tool and accompanying guidance’.
