Standing Together: Tackling Loneliness

What is Standing Together and who is it helping?

The Mental Health Foundation’s Standing Together Project aims to improve the emotional health and community connections of older people living in supported housing, as well as to reduce loneliness and isolation.

From late summer 2015, project staff have been facilitating weekly self-help groups for periods of six months, in retirement and extra care housing settings. The groups are for tenants who are experiencing memory loss, mental health issues, learning disabilities, and experience significant loneliness. The research team at the Foundation is evaluating the project. Funded by the Big Lottery for three years, it’s planned to facilitate up to 25 groups in four cohorts; building on our self-help and dementia pilot project.

This project is a partnership between the Mental Health Foundation and Housing & Care 21, a UK housing organisation providing social housing and support to people in later life, including people with dementia. They also now have a new partner in Notting Hill Housing.
