Why we need to talk about loneliness

 

NCC

Loneliness is an issue that can affect us all at some point in our lives.

In January 2018, following recommendations from the Jo Cox Foundation, the UK Government announced a programme of work to tackle loneliness. The following October, the Government launched its Loneliness Strategy , which committed to tackling the stigma of loneliness and promoting the importance of social connections. And from this, the #LetsTalkLoneliness campaign was born, to encourage everyone to start the conversation and say it’s OK to feel lonely and it’s okay to talk about it.

This website brings together organisations, resources and inspirational stories that are united in a shared aim, to get more people talking about loneliness.
