Government has engaged closely with the Loneliness Action Group in the development and now implementation of its Loneliness Strategy. The Home Office has worked in tandem with other departments in this and Home Office officials have spoken with the Loneliness Action Group about our progress in delivering our commitments in the Strategy.

Government officials have regularly attended the quarterly Loneliness Action Group meetings, to share updates and hear the group's views. The Minister for Sport and Civil Society, who leads Government's work on loneliness, spoke at the Loneliness Action Group conference in May 2019.
