Awareness Week

Hosted by Marmalade Trust, this year's campaign takes place from 15th-19th June 2020.

About us

Marmalade Trust is a charity that raises awareness of loneliness and helps people to make new connections. Our vision is to create a society where anyone can talk freely and openly about loneliness – after all, it’s a normal human emotion.

Marmalade Trust is the home of Loneliness Awareness Week, and we’re proud to be working with some fantastic partners across the UK including The Great Get Together and the Jo Cox Foundation

What is Loneliness Awareness Week?

We started Loneliness Awareness Week (LAW) 4 years ago to raise awareness of loneliness and encourage people to speak about it openly. It’s a powerful message that resonates with many and each year LAW receives more and more attention.

Last year 800 events took place and on our campaign launch day, conversations about loneliness were taking place every 5 seconds.

One Less Lonely Voice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, instead of face-to-face events we’re hosting a virtual campaign called ‘One Less Lonely Voice’. We are taking the ‘one’ out of loneliness, to signify one less lonely voice.

Our aim is to empower everyone to understand loneliness one conversation at a time. By building on our understanding, we can help ourselves and others to manage feelings of loneliness.

Join the conversation! #LetsTalkLoneliness
