Are you living alone or have recently relocated and feeling quite isolated?
Are you feeling more isolated because you have reduced work hours or are working from home?
Have you recently lost a loved one or friends due to death or relocation?
Are you unable to participate in activities due to access issues, mobility, illness or lack of transport?
Social isolation is a state of complete or considerable lack of contact between an individual and society and it differs from loneliness, which reflects temporary and involuntary lack of contact with other humans in the world. Social isolation can be an issue for individuals of any age, though symptoms may differ by age group.
