We're fighting a "Loneliness Epidemic"

Lancashire is the loneliest place in the UK

Loneliness is a Killer

Being lonely is a greater health risk than being obese or smoking. 

  • Loneliness increases your chance of death  by 26%! 

Older people & those with disability are most at risk

Due to increasing austerity measures unless you have a very serious disability, there can be quite literally nowhere to go.

Imagine having no reason to get out of bed each day.

  • 67% of people say they're UNCOMFORTABLE around people with disabilities
  • Over half a million older people spend almost EVERY DAY alone


Helping people stay social will always be a key Sliding Doors priority.
