be lonely, but
you’re not alone

Wear yellow socks to show you care
Young people are lonely more often than any other age group, but we don’t talk about it because we don’t think other people will understand, or be able to help.
We think loneliness is our fault. But it isn’t.
We think loneliness will last forever. But it won’t.
It’s hard being lonely, but we’re in this together.
Why yellow socks?
Yellow socks are our symbol of solidarity.
We realised we often walk around looking down, never catching anyone’s eye or seeing them smile. But if we see you’re wearing yellow socks, we’ll know you care.
Plus, yellow socks complete any outfit!
No socks? No problem!
