Next week is loneliness awareness week running from the 15th -19th June 2020.  The aim of the campaign is to help people understand that loneliness is a normal human emotion and is ever so prevalent for some particularly at the moment with lockdown and social distancing. The Marmalade Trust was set up four years ago with the mission “to find and support isolated people to reconnect with society and enjoy better lives”.  https://marmaladetrust.org/about-us/

Marmalade Trust is the home of Loneliness Awareness Week, and they are proud to be working with some fantastic partners across the UK including The Great Get Together and the Jo Cox Foundation

What is Loneliness Awareness Week?

Marmalade Trust started Loneliness Awareness Week (LAW) 4 years ago to raise awareness of loneliness and encourage people to speak about it openly. It’s a powerful message that resonates with many and each year LAW receives more and more attention.
