This year, Loneliness Awareness Week will take place from 14th – 18th June. 

We want people to raise awareness of loneliness, and get people talking about it, by sharing the hashtag #LetsTalkLoneliness We can all get lonely, it′s a natural human emotion. After a year of lockdowns, social distancing and restrictions, more of us than ever are experiencing loneliness, which can have an impact on our well-being. 

For loneliness awareness week this year, we invite people to get involved by learning more about loneliness, sharing resources or supporting a charity which helps people who are lonely or isolated.
