Capital of Loneliness (On Going Work)
There is an undeniable stigma surrounding loneliness. Research shows that 30% of British people said they would be embarrassed to say they felt lonely, which can be a leading factor in preventing people from coming forward and seeking help.
“Our capital is one of the busiest and vibrant cities in the world, but it can also be a lonely and alienating place for Londoners of all backgrounds and ages. Whilst it should be as straightforward as possible for those suffering from loneliness to access the support that they need, there is an undeniable stigma surrounding this condition, which can prevent Londoners from coming forward and reaching out.” Jennette Arnold OBE AM
