2022.01.25_LSOOL_ Static_1-1_Walk_HRes.pngLoneliness is something that can affect us all, young or old, at any point in our lives and we all experience feeling lonely in different ways.

There is no one way to deal with loneliness and isolation, but there are lots of different things that you can and do help yourself, or someone around you:

  • Try talking about your feelings to a friend, family member or professional
  • Consider joining a group or class that focuses on something you enjoy
  • Consider visiting places where you can just be around other people – for example, a park, the cinema or a cafe
