Isolation report

Isolation Report

  • Produced for the Older Persons Partnership Board

  • Idea for a conference in December

  • Trigger and referral tool for professionals and the community organisations etc


Key findings

Key findings

  • 6 out of 10 older people are classed as living in “Lone Pensioner households” (approximately 12,000 people).

  • Over 50 per cent of over 65s live in first floor or above properties.

  • Brompton, Hans Town and Royal Hospital have the highest numbers of lone pensioners (Royal Hospital figures are disproportionate due to the 200 Chelsea Pensioners).

  • There are also 11 wards with 500 to 700 lone pensioners across the borough.

  • Over 70% of professionals dealing with older people said they visit lone pensioner households

  • More White UK

  • More Females

  • Those aged 75 plus more likely to experience isolation

Housing issues:

  • Poor quality flat with accessibility issues
