Inquiry into Social Isolation and Loneliness in Queensland
On 27 May 2021, the Legislative Assembly agreed to a motion that the Community Support and Services Committee inquire into and report on social isolation and loneliness in Queensland. The committee is required to report to the Legislative Assembly by Monday 6 December 2021.
The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH) submission presented data and research specifically focused on loneliness and social isolation in Australian women. As a longitudinal study, ALSWH is uniquely positioned to provide insight into the causes and drivers of loneliness and social isolation, their impacts on women’s health and wellbeing and potential mitigating factors.
