Loneliness Awareness Week

Loneliness is something we all can experience at any point in our lives, which can have a huge impact on our mental health and wellbeing.

Sometimes reaching out to someone with as little as three words - fancy a chat? - can make a big difference.

This Loneliness Awareness Week (13-17th June) as part of the Better Health: Every Mind Matters campaign, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is encouraging people to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’ by taking simple action to help someone who may be feeling lonely. If we do this regularly, we can all help to lift each other up. 

There are lots of simple actions that you can do to help others who may be feeling lonely this Loneliness Awareness Week, including: 

Giving a friend or family member a call 

Inviting someone for a walk 

Reaching out to those you haven’t heard from for a cuppa 

There are also ways you can help your own Loneliness this week:

Join a club

Play a game 

Volunteer Check in over the phone

Find out how you can help to lift someone out of loneliness
