Online campaign launches to tackle youth loneliness

An online campaign using a digital recreation of the night sky has launched to offer support to the 1.9m young people in the UK affected by social isolation.

The campaign sees the launch of support website Lonelynotalone.org, which aims to connect young people using an online replica of the evening’s night sky.

While looking at the image together young people can type or leave voice notes to chat about how loneliness has impacted them.

The website is aimed at 10- to 25-year-olds and has been created through the Co-op Foundation’s Lonely Not Alone campaign to tackle youth loneliness.
