What do we know about loneliness?


An international conference in Oxford presenting current evidence and guiding action to tackle a major health and social challenge.


AGE UK Oxfordshire is mounting an international conference to bring together the latest knowledge about loneliness: its causes, effects and the solutions.

American leaders of thought in this area will include Professors Cacioppo and Holt-Lunstad, alongside our own UK experts including Professors Mima Cattan, Thomas Scharf, Vanessa Burholt and Christina Victor.

Held at the beautiful Merton College Oxford, the aim is to lay the knowledge foundation to tackle this terrible social problem.
