||<p>The Ministerial group on loneliness chaired by the Minister for Sport and Civil
Society continues to oversee the delivery of the 60 commitments in the loneliness
strategy alongside considering further opportunities to tackle loneliness across Government.
Departments are providing officials to resource a cross-government team to lead the
loneliness work. Government will include an update on progress in its first annual
report on tackling loneliness, which we expect to be published later in 2019.</p>
