A connected Island an Ireland free from loneliness
The Loneliness Taskforce
The Loneliness Taskforce was established by Dr. Keith Swanick in collaboration with Seán Moynihan of ALONE to coordinate a response to the growing issue of loneliness in Ireland. The Loneliness Taskforce aims to increase awareness of the problem and to produce a set of recommendations for Government, state agencies and all policy makers. From March 26th to April 9th 2018, the Loneliness Taskforce sought submissions from the general public, Oireachtas and Northern Ireland Assembly Members, Local Authorities, MEPs, Charities, Public Participation Networks and Volunteer Networks across the Country, both North and South. In total, 310 submissions were received. The Loneliness Taskforce includes members from the education, NGO, sporting, nursing, psychology, business and academic sectors. They have drawn on their broad range of experience, consultation with other experts and interaction with the general public through the submissions process to shape this report.
