What are we doing?
FaithAction is exploring faith groups’ response to loneliness, social isolation and integration, and working to highlight the major role faith-based organisations are already playing in tackling what has become a key issue in our society.
We’re also looking at what more faith groups can do, and how to link them up with government policies on tackling loneliness – such as its A Connected Society strategy, and initiatives around social prescribing.
