It’s important to understand what drives loneliness, who is affected and how we can respond, effectively
One of the goals of Be Someone For Someone is to continue to research the triggers of loneliness in order to implement, scale and measure impactful programs. We are grateful to those organisations who have provided domestic and international expertise and insights to date.
