Building Connected Communities: Social Isolation and Loneliness Toolkit

June 14, 2019

“The Sheridan Centre for Elder Research is thrilled to support work that brought together academics, community partners, faith leaders, an interdisciplinary student team and the older adult population at large to address this growing issue,” says its director, Dr. Lia Tsotsos. “The strategies and resources that emerged from this project will undoubtedly have an impact on our local regions and beyond, hopefully sparking change at a provincial and national level.”

The Building Connected Communities: Social Isolation and Loneliness Toolkit was developed as part of a four-year Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada grant for the Sheridan-led research project titled “Building Connected Communities: Improving Community Supports to Reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation in Immigrants 65+". 

The toolkit is now available for download on SOURCE - Sheridan’s Scholarly Output Research Creative Excellence website.
