Loneliness in the older population is a huge and growing problem in Scotland that can't be fixed with a quick or easy solution. But there's so much we can do to help ourselves and others.
Knock on your neighbours door. Pause when you're out shopping to have a proper blether. Pop round to see that auntie you keep meaning to call.
But more than anything, let's all be kind.
