Loneliness Awareness Week 14-18 June
Hosted by Marmalade Trust, Ready Friends has been supporting this week's national campaign that raises awareness of loneliness and gets people talking about it. “This Loneliness Awareness Week, we're encouraging people to see loneliness as an experience, not as a condition. It doesn't define us. By building a greater awareness and acceptance of loneliness, we can help ourselves and others to manage the feeling.” https://www.marmaladetrust.org/law
Follow our campaign on Twitter @ready_friends, saying thank you to Reading’s amazing community groups who have been taking action on loneliness.
