In early 2018, the UK appointed a minister for loneliness, after a 2017 report by the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness reported that more than nine million people in the country often or always feel lonely. Employing a minister for loneliness is one measure in a series of steps that aims to tackle loneliness in the UK, which also includes creating methods for measuring loneliness, establishing policies on the issue and setting up a fund that would help tackle the problem.
