Loneliness Awareness Week
June 12 - June 18
Loneliness Awareness Week is a week dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness. Its all about creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends or colleagues about loneliness. Loneliness is a natural human emotion – we are hardwired to need social connections. By talking about it, we can support ourselves and others.
The campaign centres on a powerful message which resonates with many – we’ve trended on Twitter, reached 271.5 million people in one week with the campaign, and each year we’ve seen tens of thousands of organisations, charities and individuals get involved, including the Royal Family, the Prime Minister, Major of London, NHS trusts, and all Government departments.
Who runs the campaign?
Marmalade Trust is the UK’s leading loneliness charity offering support for all ages and the only charity in the world specifically dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness. We launched Loneliness Awareness Week (‘LAW’) in 2017 and it grows in momentum each year across the UK and internationally.
