Many people experience loneliness to one degree or another, and the current pandemic may be making this more common.  The Great Get Together and The Marmalade Trust have come together to produce the Understanding Loneliness Toolkit to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding loneliness.

The toolkit provides ideas of how to help ourselves and those around us, and also gives some top tips of ways to connect this winter.

How can I help someone to do this?

If you think someone you know might be lonely, you could download the toolkit and see which ideas could work for them.
