The Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland 2018 ‘State of the Nation’ survey, examines social and community issues in today’s society, along with establishing a barometer check on how people feel life compares now with previous generations.

Rotary’s survey has importantly uncovered how nearly two-thirds of us (64%) feel lonely.

Loneliness is an issue normally associated with older people but in fact, the highest percentage of people affected were aged between 16 – 29, followed by those aged 30 – 44. This is a significant finding and something that Rotary is seeking to address.
