• ‘Let’s Talk Loneliness’

    I am pleased to support the new public-facing Government campaign ‘Let’s Talk Loneliness’. The campaign aims to reduce the stigma around feeling lonely and raise awareness. Many of us experience loneliness, and it is essential that we feel able to talk about it.

    Loneliness is increasing throughout our society – recent research shows that 74% of us have experienced loneliness and have not told anyone about it and between 3 and 9 million people report feeling always or often lonely.

    Information is available on the Let’s Talk Loneliness website where you can see toolkits and supportive videos and messages. One way in which we can tackle loneliness is by coming together and sharing our experiences of loneliness with those around us.
