Recognising loneliness


Recognising loneliness in others can be difficult as feelings of loneliness are personal and subjective. People might also be reluctant to say how they are truly feeling due to the stigma of loneliness, or feeling like it is somehow their fault.

How you recognise loneliness and reach people who are most in need of support will vary depending on your organisation and the wider social, structural and physical environment in which you operate.
