Social spaces and dedicated events programme key to combatting loneliness in big cities

Loneliness Awareness Week 2019, which runs from 17-21 June, is seeking to reduce the stigma of loneliness by getting people talking about it. Now in its third year, the campaign spearheaded by the Marmalade Trust has taken off rapidly, reaching more than 4 million people in 2018.
The big city lifestyle can be a lonely one at times, that’s why lifestyle-led rental homes brand Tipi, which provides hundreds of apartments in London’s Wembley Park, takes such a proactive approach to combatting loneliness.
