Loneliness Awareness Week 13th - 17th June 2022 Posted on 10 Jun 2022

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. The campaign aims to reduce the stigma around loneliness and encourage people to talk more openly about it. Every year, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) work with Marmalade Trust to help raise awareness. This year, the week will run from 13th - 17th June 2022. Following the success of our Every Mind Matters campaign so far in 2022, DCMS will continue to encourage people to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’ as part of the Better Health - Every Mind Matters campaign
