Loneliness Awareness Week is coming up from 10 – 16 June, and DCMS welcomes you to get involved by sharing the Department’s loneliness campaign across your channels!

Loneliness Awareness Week is an annual campaign organised by Marmalade Trust to raise awareness of loneliness. This year’s theme, ‘Random Acts of Connection’, encourages everyday moments of connection to help us feel happier and increase a sense of belonging.

Research shows that feelings of loneliness are most prevalent among young people. The DCMS Better Health – Every Mind Matters loneliness campaign aims to normalise loneliness so that 16 – 24 year olds know that it is OK to feel lonely sometimes, and feel able to speak to someone if they do feel lonely, building a national conversation.

To find out more and help spread the word, check out the Communications Toolkit, or to discuss more bespoke ways to get involved, contact the DCMS Campaigns team at campaigns@dcms.gov.uk
