This report from the APPG on Social Integration presents initial findings from Part One of the Inquiry and is about understanding the issues experienced under the current pandemic and sharing good practice in relation to social connectedness.

It recognised that people experience social isolation differently and personal factors contributing to social isolation, such as self-isolation, unemployment or furloughing, living in a deprived neighbourhood etc, and explored different approaches to overcoming them, including housing and technology interventions.
