Marmalade Companions

Helping Marmalade members make new connections in their local community.

We all feel lonely sometimes. 

We want people to see loneliness as an experience, not as a condition. We want people to talk about loneliness, not admit to it. By building a greater awareness and acceptance of loneliness, we can help ourselves and others to manage the feeling.

In the past few years, we have gained international recognition for the work we're doing. BUT we're a tiny team and we need your help to continue the important work. Your contribution will make such a meaningful impact to us, whether you donate £5 or £5,000. Every little bit helps.

Join the conversation.

In the past few years, more than 25,000 charities, organisations, companies and individuals have come together to raise awareness, including the Royal Family, Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, NHS trusts and all Government departments.

“I don’t have anyone around, so without Marmalade, I’d be spending Christmas Day alone. Last year, I met so many wonderful people, I was smiling for days afterwards. It cheers me up just thinking of it!”
