We want to amplify your voices and keep the conversation around loneliness flowing. Sharing your story could help others recognise their feelings, make them feel less alone and more connected, and encourage them to speak up too!
Whether you want to submit a quick video talking about a time when you've felt lonely, a photo/quote describing your experiences and/or something that has helped you cope with loneliness... We'd love to hear from you!
Your experiences of loneliness can be from any time in your life - not just during the pandemic.
To take part, please email [email protected] with:
- Your media (a video/photo/quote)
- A brief description of your experience with loneliness
- Your details (first name, age and where you're from - although you can be as anonymous as you'd like!)
By submitting your story, you agree for us to use it in our #LonelinessLooksLike initiative and communications. If you'd like us to tag you on social media, please do send through your social media handle(s) too.
We also encourage you to start the conversation on your own social media channels by using the hashtag #LonelinessLooksLike.

EVENTS: The Common Room Series
We are also expanding our More In Common Network’s ‘Common Room’ event series. The series brings people together from across the UK to connect and exchange ideas on how we can address loneliness and bridge divides in our communities.
The next session will take place on Tuesday, 6 April. To find out more, click here or sign up to the newsletter here.
