About Australian Coalition to End Loneliness

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.

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.
