Event description

Description

In this seminar we focus on interventions to address loneliness. It will appeal to those interested in loneliness across the life course and in processes and methods used to evaluate socially-based interventions.

This event is part of the ESRC-funded Reimagining Loneliness Seminar Series which seeks to develop a 'second generation' research agenda and a more sophisticated approach to the study of loneliness.
