The Yorkshire Post’s Loneliness: The Hidden Epidemic campaign has been voted the best of the past 12 months in a public vote.

As part of Local Newspaper Week, the public was asked to vote for the local or regional newspaper campaign which had made the biggest difference to its local community.

More than 12,000 votes were cast in the online poll and the Yorkshire Post was today (May 16) announced as the winner.

Readers can back the Yorkshire Post’s campaign to highlight the human cost of loneliness, which takes it toll on 91,300 older people in our region, by writing to their local authority, urging it to write loneliness into its health strategies or by volunteering for projects in their communities.
