This pandemic has meant that more people than ever across the UK, and across all ages, are experiencing loneliness. From social distancing measures and lockdowns to school and work closures, most of us have experienced a change in our lifestyles, leading to feelings of isolation and loneliness.
We need to address the stigma around loneliness and mental health. Learning more about loneliness allows you to help yourself and those around you face it together.
In partnership with the Marmalade Trust, a charity dedicated to raising awareness about loneliness, we have compiled an Understanding Loneliness Toolkit to get you started.
