Let's talk loneliness.

Marmalade Trust is a Bristol-based charity dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness and empowering people to make connections.

Marmalade Trust receives The King's Award!

Equivalent to an MBE, the King’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK, and we are truly humbled to be recognized for our commitment to raising awareness about loneliness and fostering connections.

Bringing companionship and joy to those spending Christmas Day alone.

Changing the way we think about loneliness.

We all feel lonely sometimes. Let's talk about loneliness, not admit to it - because the more we talk about it, the more can help ourselves and others.

It's our 10th birthday!

We're celebrating 10 fantastic years of Marmalade Trust. In everything we do, from global awareness campaigns to community events in our Bristol hometown, we're all about encouraging conversation and connection. 

Joined by organisations globally.


Your gift will help us change lives.

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. In 2023, you can help us bring friendship and fun to some of the loneliest people in our area.
