Result is taken from the annual User Survey. Studies show that there is a link between loneliness and poor health.
2016/17 survey results show that the 48.6% of Adult Social Care users reported that they have as much social contact as they would like. Whilst this is a reduction on the previous year the longer term trend remains positive.
The results compare favourably with England 46.1% and West Midlands 45.4%.
Results of the 2017/18 survey are expected to be published Oct 2018.
