The Cox Commission now ran by lawmakers Rachel Reeves and Seema Kennedy said that the organization welcomed the government's "prompt response" to its issue and praised the newly appointed Minister for loneliness.
According to a 2017 report published by the Jo Cox Commision On Loneliness, more than nine million people in the country said they "often" or "always" feel lonely.
Tracey Crouch, who is now Britain's minister for sport and civil society, will add minister of loneliness to her duties as she works to measure degrees of loneliness and come up with ways to relieve those feelings.
"This is an issue that Jo cared passionately about and we will honor her memory by tackling it, helping the millions of people across the United Kingdom who suffer from loneliness", Crouch said.
Others, however, sincerely congratulated Crouch on the new appointment, which some users insisted should be discussed in the context of Brexit-related issues.
The initiative is part of the project on loneliness launched by late Labour MP Jo Cox, who was killed in June 2016 in the charged atmosphere related to the referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union.
Jenkins has since joined a Facebook group for Britons affected by loneliness, which, she says, has helped her to get out of the house more.
Tracey Crouch, the minister for sport and civil society, has been asked by the prime minister to lead the cross-governmental strategy tackling loneliness and social isolation.
"One of the very bad things about losing Jo is knowing how much difference she would have made in the world", said Cox's husband, Brendan, in a tweet.
'When the kids wake up this morning I'm going to tell them how - even though she's not here - she's still making the world a better place'. Researchers at the University of California found that elderly people who reported loneliness were more likely to develop difficulties with activities of daily living. "It has been recorded that being lonely is as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day", she said.
The government announced the Office of National Statistics will devise a method of measuring loneliness, and a fund will be set up to help tackle the problem.
Theresa May will host an event in Downing Street today to honour Cox and speak about the work of the commission, which is headed up by Labour's Rachel Reeves and Conservative MP Seema Kennedy.
