Australian Coalition to End Loneliness (ACEL) Data Collection
Who are we?

The Australian Coalition to End Loneliness (ACEL) aims to raise awareness of, and address loneliness and physical social isolation through evidence-based interventions and advocacy. With a focus on both loneliness and physical social isolation, ACEL is involved in advocacy for improved social access, as well as supporting services and agencies to be effective in recognizing and addressing loneliness in the community. Inspired by the work of the UK Campaign to End Loneliness and international research evidence of the physiological, psychological, social and economic costs of loneliness and social isolation, ACEL has drawn together research expertise from Australian and international universities, service delivery expertise from not-for-profit organisations and government agencies, community groups and skilled volunteers, in order to address loneliness in Australia.

Why it's important?

Internationally, loneliness is recognized as an emerging public health issue. Loneliness occurs when the quality of our relationships are felt to be inadequate. It can occur even if we are surrounded by people, as well as when we are socially isolated. Everyone experiences loneliness at points in life, just as we experience pain and hunger. Loneliness is a prompt to seek out a way to meet our needs, in this case for social connection. For many people the experience of loneliness is temporary, but for others it becomes entrenched and damaging. We want to provide resources for people who are curious about loneliness or those who need a service. We are seeking to collect information, so we can provide a pathway for people seeking services and others with an interest in reducing loneliness;therefore, we are asking services to identify themselves as having a focus on reducing loneliness and providing their details that can be included in a national database of loneliness services.
