We understand that loneliness affects our health and happiness. Research suggests there are millions of people of all ages in the UK who feel lonely most of the time. Over many months of working with lonely people we discovered the most important step to tackle loneliness is for people to open up about their current situation.
Although there is no shortage of clubs and activities to join sometimes we just don't feel confident enough to reach out or fear rejection. Our experience is that drawing strength from like-minded people can make all the difference. That's why we created Beating Loneliness Together.
What to expect
We meet weekly to:
- share our experiences of loneliness with like-minded people;
- get practical help and support from people who have overcome feelings of loneliness;
- learn about some suggested steps to regain confidence and resilience to meet new people and strengthen existing relationships; and
- help others over time by sharing the lessons we learn on our journey.
How to get involved
The sessions are completely free and there is no commitment to attend.
We're launching support groups across London. If you're interested please leave your details below and we'll be in touch.
