What is the picture in Slough?

Each year, the Office of National Statistics publishes a report estimating personal wellbeing in the UK, analysing data by country, age and sex. They carry out their research by using their wellbeing measure (covering four domains - life satisfaction, feeling worthwhile, happiness and anxiety).

Though their work doesn’t specifically cover loneliness, Slough measured below the UK average on all domains in the latest report; though its rating had slightly improved over the last five years. These measures strongly suggest that loneliness and social isolation are issues affecting residents; and these issues may have been factors contributing to Slough’s low score overall.
