Lockdown and Loneliness

A new report by the Red Cross has shown that the Covid-19 crisis has made loneliness worse, with some people more affected than others.

The reports key findings include:

  • Before the Covid-19 crisis one in five people reported being often or always lonely. Now, 41 per cent of UK adults report feeling lonelier since lockdown.
  • Thirty-one per cent of UK adults often feel alone, as though they have no one to turn to.
  • A third of UK adults haven’t had a meaningful conversation in the last week.
