Do you feel lonely in Redbridge?
Would you like to meet more friends, or leave the house more regularly?
Redbridge Council has launched a consultation to find out how many people in the borough feel isolated and alone.
Aimed at those aged 65 and over, the short online survey poses questions such as "how often do you feel that you lack companionship?" and "how often do you feel left out?".
Respondents then select one of four multiple-choice answers ranging from never to always.
A Redbridge Council spokesman said: "This short survey aims to get a better understanding of the views of people aged 65 and over who live in Redbridge.
"We want to find out how many older people may have experienced feeling lonely and isolated and how they think this can be improved.
