Loneliness and Social Isolation

The Tackling Loneliness and Social Isolation (LSI) elearning programme contains multiple different formats of learning around how to tackle loneliness and social isolation. It provides learners and staff with useful information to support loneliness and social isolation upskilling, training, and development. The resources are accessible to learners and staff from right across the health sector, local government as well as voluntary and third sectors.

The elearning programme is broken down into several methods of learning:

  • an interactive elearning session
  • two animations
  • a podcast mini-series and
  • a resource guide.

There is also a link to the Population Wellbeing Portal containing external resources that can help further explain this topic and provide alternative support options.

By accessing these resources, you will:

  • understand the importance of loneliness and social isolation (LSI) as a risk factor for negative health outcomes,
  • be able to recognise people within their practice at risk of LSI,
  • gain knowledge of the available range of evidence-based interventions for loneliness,
  • and know how to refer or signpost those identified at risk of LSI.
