Loneliness.

At The Challenge Network we exist to end social division. We love finding ways to bring people from different groups together.


But if there’s one thing worse than being in one group and distrusting another, it’s being in no group at all and distrusting everyone.

That’s why – this week – the blog is talking about loneliness.

Today we’ll start with a fact and some questions.

The fact:  When asked who their main companion was, 5 million older people in the UK said ‘The TV’.

Some questions:
– How many people are this lonely?
– How did it get this bad?
– Is it getting worse?
– What can be done about it?

We’re going to try to answer these this week.
