Ageing Better: Working with older people to reduce social isolation and loneliness: A guide for Housing Associations

This short guide by Age Better in Sheffield, in partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA), aims to set out practical evidence about what has worked in reducing social isolation and loneliness amongst older people; drawing on lessons from some of the 14 partners who are delivering projects as part of the Ageing Better programme. Whilst this guide looks specifically at the housing sector, many of the themes we have identified have wider applicability to the design of any programmes seeking to reduce loneliness and isolation across all age groups.
