Imagine not talking to anybody for a week or two? The silence! Unable to speak about how you are feeling. Happy, sad, lonely!
Loneliness Awareness Week is an annual event hosted by Marmalade Trust.
Marmalade Trust is the UK’s leading loneliness charity and the only charity in the world specifically dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness across all ages.
Feeling lonely is something that all of us can experience at any point and can have a huge impact on our wellbeing.
Sometimes admitting we feel lonely can be hard but it’s important to remember that many others experience feelings of loneliness too and that this feeling can pass.
This Loneliness Awareness Week, we are continuing to encourage people to reach out to others to help someone who may be feeling lonely, taking small acts of kindness such as sending them a text or inviting them for a walk or a coffee, which might, in turn, help themselves feel less lonely too.
