Loneliness Awareness Week

Organiser: 
Marmalade Trust
Description: 

Loneliness Awareness Week will take place from 14 - 18 June. Hosted by Marmalade Trust, it's a campaign that raises awareness of loneliness and gets people talking about it.

We all feel lonely at times – it’s a natural human emotion. We're biologically wired for social contact, and loneliness is our signal that we need more. 

After a year of lockdowns, social distancing, and restrictions, more of us are experiencing loneliness than ever, which is having a great impact on our wellbeing. We need to remove the stigma and shame surrounding loneliness. And the best way to do that? Let's talk about it! Let's make this the year we accept that loneliness exists.
