On the 24th of November 2016, Voluntary Health Scotland held our annual conference titled Loneliness- a threat to Scotland’s health. The purpose of the conference was to examine the damage that protracted loneliness causes to both physical and mental health, ask what difference a national strategy can make, and explore a range of third sector interventions making a difference on the ground.
We were joined by over 150 delegates from the third sector, NHS and public sector from across Scotland.
