David Cameron will support the launch today of a campaign to help combat loneliness among older people.
National charity Friends of the Elderly's 'Be a Friend' campaign will encourage people across the UK to get to know their older neighbours.
They hope to engage at least 30,000 people during the first year of the campaign.
The campaign launch comes as a report released by the charity reveals that over 5 million older people in the UK are lonely.
