British Red Cross - Loneliness Service

The British Red Cross is helping people connect with their local communities, meet new friends, and offering ways to help people cope with loneliness. If you are feeling lonely, please know that you are not alone. The British Red Cross is here to help you.

One in five people in the UK say they experience feelings of loneliness, and during the coronavirus pandemic many more of us felt anxious and isolated. We are working hard to make sure that no-one feels like they have nowhere to turn.

If you’d like to reconnect with your community and meet new people, contact your local service. The friendly, experienced team tailor their support to what you need, or we can help you find another organisation that works in your area. You'll find help whatever your age, gender, race, background or where you live.
