How your school can join us

Join us from 10 - 16 June 2024

Marmalade Trust is an award-winning loneliness charity that launched Loneliness Awareness Week in 2017. Each June, millions of people from every part of society take part across the UK and globally. This year, join individuals, businesses, schools, charities, governments and public figures to raise awareness and empower everyone to find new connections. 


Our theme, Random Acts of Connection, encourages everyone to increase those simple, everyday moments of connection which help us feel happier, less lonely and increase our sense of belonging.
