Stannah reveals London over 65s loneliest in Britain

London’s pensioners are the loneliest in Britain, a YouGov poll has found.

The Stannah Silver Census conducted by lift manufacturer, Stannah questioned 1,000 adults to provide a finger on the pulse of an oft-overlooked segment of British society.

The nationwide survey of those aged 65 and over found that 75% of pensioners surveyed revealed they experience feelings of loneliness – despite living within one hour of a relative.

London’s pensioners felt by far the most isolated in Britain, with those in Wales (61%) and the North (64%) feeling the least lonely.

The insight into British pensioners is visually represented in our infographic below.
