Social Isolation and Loneliness

You might be feeling lonely or isolated for many reasons, such as if you live alone or don’t regularly meet with friends and family. If you are concerned about a loved one, or if you yourself are feeling lonely or isolated, please call us on 0333 005 0095 to find out about our FREE Social Isolation ‘stepping stone’ service.

If you suffer from loneliness or isolation, you’re not alone. Around a quarter of UK adults say they often feel lonely and it’s something that can have a huge impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing. In fact, studies have shown it can be as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day! That’s because it can lead to depression, high blood pressure, anxiety, tiredness and insomnia.
