This briefing draws on discussion from a seminar held in September 2017 to explore the opportunities and barriers faced by commissioners seeking to address social isolation in older people.  It also looks at previous research and evaluations in this field.

The paper:

  • identifies the evidence that points the way to a better understanding of effective interventions
  • provides examples of practice emerging in different parts of the country
  • examines what needs to happen next in order to create a more conducive
    commissioning environment.
