Loneliness at work

A new report by the British Red Cross, Loneliness at work, explores the extent of loneliness at work in the UK and whether different groups are impacted differently.

Among the key findings, it was discovered that:
  • Disabled workers and those with long-term health conditions affecting their day-to-day lives are more likely to report general loneliness than those without (24%, compared to 9%).
This research was undertaken for the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Tackling Loneliness and Connected Communities. The APPG exists to bring focus and action to the issues of loneliness across UK communities and is supported by the British Red Cross and the Campaign to End Loneliness.

With the shift towards more home and hybrid working since Covid, some might feel more able to work in a way that suits them, but feel less connected to their colleagues.
