Our Ideas: Scottish Government Isolation & Loneliness Consultation

Vintage Vibes Scottish Government

The Scottish Government have opened a ‘A Connected Scotland’ consultation to ask what is needed to be done nationally to better empower communities and create the conditions to allow social connections to flourish.


Reducing isolation and increasing the range and quality of social connections does not have one single silver bullet. It is complicated, costly, and requires a combination of long and short term solutions that will change our communities for the better.

So, we’ve created a little document that outlines our recommendations; from helping employers to encourage volunteering, to creating a stronger mental health system, from improving transport options to implementing Social Prescribing.

These have been developed in collaboration between the staff, trustees, beneficiaries and stakeholders of LifeCare and The Broomhouse Centre & Enterprises as part of the Vintage Vibes charitable partnership.

We hope you enjoy it!
