FED: Loneliness to be discussed in parliament

Date: Sun 11 Nov 2018


After a groundbreaking study that found a quarter of Australians are lonely, the issue could be discussed in federal parliament.

Research released about loneliness last week has prompted Labor MP Andrew Giles to put forward a private member's motion on loneliness.

The report found one-in-four people are lonely, while 55 per cent of the population feel they lack companionship at least sometimes.

Mr Giles said Australia should be following Britain's lead after the UK recently appointed a minister for loneliness to tackle the isolation felt by more than one-in-10 people.

"In Australia this important issue, which affects so many lives, deserves to be taken more seriously," Mr Giles said.

"Labor takes loneliness seriously: as a social policy and public health priority.
