Most of us will feel lonely at some point in our lives. For a lot of us, particularly those in later life, loneliness can define our lives and have a significant impact on our wellbeing. But we can help you feel less alone.

Everyone can feel lonely, and you don't necessarily need a reason to feel this way. Sometimes it might even just pass. But, maybe there is a reason, or maybe it's just not passing this time. However it features in your life, and however it makes you feel, there are things you can do to feel less lonely.
