Loneliness Awareness Week

15th – 19th June 2020

Get involved in our annual campaign to raise awareness of loneliness in the UK


Marmalade Trust started Loneliness Awareness Week (LAW) just four years ago to break the stigma attached to loneliness and encourage people to speak about it openly. We envisage a future where people feel free to talk about loneliness without embarrassment or fear of being judged.

It’s a powerful message that resonates with many, and each year LAW receives more and more attention. Last year 800 events took place across the UK, from coffee mornings and book clubs, to walking clubs and art workshops – there was something for everyone!

We’re continuing the conversation online too with the #LetsTalkLoneliness campaign. During LAW, conversations about loneliness were taking place every 5 seconds – the campaign was trending on Twitter for 10 hours!

Loneliness Awareness Week 2020: focusing on inclusion

Marmalade Trust’s vision is to create a society where loneliness is recognised openly as something likely to affect us all.

One of the first steps to achieving this is to reduce the stigma around loneliness – our theme for LAW 2019.

We already have over 300 organisations across the UK partnering with us to raise awareness, support people to find friendship by hosting events and raise money to help us do more.

This year’s campaign looks to be bigger and better than ever.


We’ll be announcing more details about Loneliness Awareness Week 2020 in the coming months on our website, social media and newsletter.
