Loneliness Awareness Week (14th - 18th June 2021)

Loneliness is something that can affect any one of us at any point in our lives, and it has become something even more of us have had to deal with over the last year.

With social distancing restrictions steadily lifting, Loneliness Awareness Week from June 14-18th 2021 continues to be as important as ever.

Not just as a reminder that many people will continue to struggle with loneliness and isolation as we emerge from restrictions, but also to reinforce the importance of social connections.

So it will be more important than ever to take action if you or someone you know is feeling lonely.

Some simple actions to help tackle loneliness:

  • Keep in touch with those around you
    Some people will be keen to get together in person, but others might be more cautious.
  • Join a Group
    Being part of a shared interest group is a great way to make connections
  • Get in touch
    Organisations can offer support – find the right one for you
  • Help out through volunteering
    Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and connect
