We are lonely, but not alone

Will you wear yellow socks to show you care about youth loneliness?

Lots of young people feel lonely, but only a quarter of us are confident talking about it and less than a third would be comfortable asking for help if we needed it

A group of us aged 11 to 22 years old created ‘We are lonely, but not alone’ to show that any young person can feel lonely, but everybody can help

If you’re lonely, we hope this will help you see that there are people out there who care, who realise that it hurts, and who know it’s not your fault.

Group 3 Created with Sketch.

Join us by wearing yellow socks and posting your pictures and films online using #LonelyNotAlone.

Take part whenever and wherever you like.

Let’s show every child, teenager and young adult that even though so many of us feel lonely, we are not alone.

If you need to talk to someone right now, call ChildLine on 0800 1111, or The Samaritans on 116 123 : they are both there to listen.
