What we do

You may know that loneliness is now part of the national agenda and a priority for this government. However as a race equality think tank, the Runnymede Trust is undertaking this survey because they are acutely aware that there is a gap of information/evidence about how factors and triggers for loneliness might differ across different ethnic groups. While certain triggers for loneliness may be universal - such as retiring, bereavement, relationship problems etc, the Runnymede Trust feel other factors such as experiencing racism, hostile social environments, language barriers, religious discrimination etc, may have an additional impact on loneliness and social isolation for (some) BME communities.
