Taking Part

This opportunity has already taken place

We plan to talk to older people living in a particular area of Newcastle. Our aim is to speak to people with different experiences and views of being connected/isolated and/or lonely in their lives now and in the past.

We would like your help in choosing a title that is easy to understand and captures the topic of our research.

  • What sort of title do you think would work best to explain clearly what the study is about?
  • What would be most meaningful to people reading our posters and information sheets about the study?
  • What should we include or avoid in the title to encourage people to take part?

For example, it is often said that people feel there is stigma attached to the term ‘loneliness', so we might imagine that this word could be off-putting to some people. Alternatively, there may be people who feel that terms like ‘lonely' or 'isolated' match their experiences well and they would welcome the opportunity to talk about feeling lonely.

We have put together a list of possible titles as a starting point, and would like to hear your views on these options. Please feel free to contribute your own ideas and suggestions in the discussion as well!

Please select the title that you think best describes the project or comment below with your own suggestions
