Loneliness Awareness Week

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 get lonely; we understand it and we experience it. This Loneliness Awareness Week, Marmalade Trust is encouraging people to see loneliness as an experience, not as a condition. It doesn't define us. By building a greater awareness and acceptance of loneliness, we can help ourselves and others to manage the feeling.

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. 

Marmalade Trust is asking everyone (yes you!) to get involved! Together we can get loneliness.
