It's okay to say 

In 2017 we launched Loneliness Awareness Week to raise awareness of loneliness and encourage people to talk about loneliness openly.


Help us break the stigma around loneliness by taking our pledge and join the #LetsTalkLoneliness movement.


"I feel lonely"

But first of all, we have to remove the stigma that surrounds loneliness. Why do we use terms like, “I admit I am lonely” “I think s/he is suffering from loneliness”?

Where does this stigma come from? View our video below.

We want to create a society where we recognise that loneliness exists and support each other to find friendship.

In Loneliness awareness week 2019, we are launching our year long campaign to reduce the stigma. We have worked closely with HM Government and are excited to see that they agree the first step to change is removing the stigma.
