The Campaign to End Loneliness and Brunel University London are delighted to invite you to attend the Campaign’s next Research and Policy Forum meeting, being hosted by Brunel University on Monday 30th October.
The Campaign’s Research and Policy Forum is made up of more than 150 academics and policy researchers and holds meetings three times a year in association with host universities.
At the next meeting, the Campaign will present new research conducted by David McDaid and team at the LSE on the cost-effectiveness of loneliness interventions.
Researchers from Brunel University will share some of their latest findings on loneliness research and colleagues from Southampton and Queen Mary, University of London, will introduce their new projects. There is also the presentation of two newly-funded loneliness research projects.
If you are a policy or an academic researcher who works on loneliness, we encourage you to join us for an interesting day, looking at the latest in loneliness research.
