Make isolation History today

The world's eyes will be on the UK over the next four months of the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. What kind of society will they see?
I hope it will be a society in which we find the isolation of neighbours intolerable. With one in three households now being single person and half of all those aged 75 and over living alone, there has never been more social isolation.
Please join Your Square Mile's movement to Make Isolation History. Start by inviting a lonely neighbour to one of the hundreds of thousands of street parties and community events taking place over the summer.
