From inspiring stories to heartwarming friendships, practical advice to guidance on how you can help, this calendar is here to help us all understand loneliness, talk about it and help those who may need us.
23 December: A Day of Thanks Yous
Alongside £7.5 million of funding to tackle loneliness this winter, today is also our Day of Thank Yous where we’re inviting all our #LetsTalkLoneliness calendar partners to share a story of someone they’d like to thank for keeping them from feeling lonely this year.
Join the conversation using the #LetsTalkLoneliness hashtag.
22 December: Conversation starters
A simple chat on the phone can be all it takes to brighten someone’s day, lift their mood and alleviate loneliness. With Comic Relief we’re highlighting some great, simple conversation starters to get that chat going.
21 December: Rural isolation
At the start of the final week of our advent calendar, we focus on stories of rural isolation and ways organisations are connecting lonely people.
