If you're feeling lonely cover

Most of us will feel lonely at some point but there are some experiences common in older age that can make it more likely.

Our new advice guide suggests things you could try which could help to reduce loneliness, as well as information about where to look for more help.

It covers:

  • why you might be feeling lonely
  • ways to stay in touch
  • overcoming practical barriers
  • trying something new
  • learning to be alone
  • helping others.

If you’re feeling lonely or you know someone else who might be, our guide can help you find ways to feel more connected.

The advice in this guide applies to England only. A lot of it will still be relevant to you but we have a few suggestions if you are looking for advice that is specific to other parts of the UK.
