The #LetsTalkLoneliness campaign, led by the Government, has recently released a digital toolkit designed to help your organisation spread awareness of
In early 2018, based on the findings from the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness, the UK Government announced a programme of work to tackle loneliness in England and, in October 2018, announced the Loneliness Strategy.
This strategy - the first of its kind ever in the world - was committed to tackling the stigma of loneliness, as well as to promote the importance of social connections.
From this the #LetsTalkLoneliness campaign was created, designed to encourage everyone to start the conversation and say:
It’s OK to feel lonely and it’s OK to talk about it.
Loneliness is an issue that can affect us all at some point in our lives. But now more than ever, loneliness is part of the public conversation, and the campaigners want to use this opportunity to talk more openly about the impact of loneliness on people’s lives, and encourage everyone to take simple actions to help them feel more connected.
It is important to help each other to stay connected; now more than ever especially in light of the social restrictions imposed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The #LetsTalkLoneliness campaign, led by the Government, has published a toolkit, which includes things such as digital assets and social posts, designed to help your organisation spread awareness of the campaign.
