What can YOU do for Loneliness Awareness Week?
You may not have given it much thought, but not all loneliness is the same…
Emotional loneliness – When someone you were very close with is no longer there. This could be a partner or a close friend.
Social loneliness – When you feel like you’re lacking a wider social network of friends, neighbours or colleagues.
Transient loneliness – A feeling that comes and goes.
Situational loneliness – Loneliness which you only feel at certain times like Sundays, bank holidays or Christmas.
Chronic loneliness – When you feel lonely all or most of the time. 1 in 4 of people with a disability say they are lonely every day.
So today, why not make that call. knock on that door, organise that zoom?
