Lift Someone Out Of Loneliness

The Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will soon be launching their new loneliness campaign activity as part of the Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign.

The campaign primarily aims to reach 16-34 year olds by encouraging them to ‘Lift Someone Out of Loneliness’, knowing that this will likely help their own feelings of loneliness. This is based on recent research that shows that people in this demographic are at higher risk of feeling lonely compared to other age groups, but less likely to seek advice and support.

If you know someone who is lonely, the Every Mind Matters loneliness webpage on the NHS website is a great resource – there is advice for ways to help yourself or others who may be feeling lonely and suggested support routes.
