We would like to invite you to join us at the beginning of a local movement to end loneliness.

By acting as one, local groups, organisations and businesses can ensure that:


1.  People are connected, have places to go and things to do;

2. It feels ok to say you’re lonely;

3. Everyone feels welcome and supported wherever they go;

Together, we will achieve it through:

  • Introducing common standards and good practices;

  • Creating an environment for local orgs and groups to connect, share information and collaborate;

  • Raising awareness of loneliness and its impact;

  • Providing non-judgmental platforms for people to share their experiences of loneliness;

  • Ensuring local information is available in as many places as possible.

Get in touch to find out how you can be part of this exciting local movement!
