Understanding loneliness webinar

Marmalade Trust has created an interactive and educational webinar, designed to develop a better understanding of loneliness within your organisation, its causes and how to manage it.

Why we run this webinar

We are a well-established and leading loneliness charity in the UK. As experts in our field we are passionate about sharing our knowledge to help others.

It may be starting a new job, moving to a new city, becoming a parent, or a bereavement that triggers the feelings of loneliness. It is nothing to be ashamed of and yet there remains so much stigma surrounding it.

 

We have a normalising approach to viewing loneliness. Loneliness is just a natural human emotion - and one we are all likely to experience at points throughout our lives. We are human beings; we need social contact. We need to stop stigmatising loneliness and begin to understand it. 

 

Back in 2017, the Campaign to End Loneliness published that loneliness at work costs UK employers £2.5 billion every year. Five years and one pandemic later -  we can only imagine the cost to UK employers now. 

 

By raising awareness of loneliness within your organisation with this webinar, we hope to help your employees understand what loneliness is, how it can be managed and ultimately help to reduce feelings of loneliness in the workplace and beyond.

What does it cover?

This webinar provides an excellent level of understanding of loneliness. You’ll learn about the different types of loneliness, key life indicators for loneliness, how to talk about it, the impact of loneliness on our health and wellbeing, as well as tips and strategies to help yourself and others manage it.
 
The webinar includes a brief introduction to Marmalade Trust, a section about loneliness, the impact of loneliness, how to address loneliness and a 15 minute Q&A session at the end.
