Social isolation and loneliness in people aged 55 and over in Milton Keynes

This report from The Open University, in association with Age UK Milton Keynes, examines the conditions that lead to social isolation and loneliness among older people in Milton Keynes.

It recognises the detrimental effect of poorly designed housing and neighbourhoods in this regard.

Capturing the views of local residents, it uses these to inform possible strategies and solutions to prevent and mitigate isolation as well as drawing on adaptive practice from other parts of England.
