“If loneliness is set to become a public health hazard with an impact as big as smoking or obesity, then housing providers are on the front line of that fight.”
Quote from inside housing article

Loneliness and isolation can have a wide ranging impact on tenants wellbeing and capacity to maintain their tenancy. As part of wrap around wellbeing services Re-engage can offer your tenants free access to vital social and befriending opportunities. Referring older people is simple
