1 Million Minutes

Over 64 million minutes pledged to help end loneliness

A survey by Good Morning Britain has found that more than half of Brits felt lonely after losing someone they were close to, a third said such a loss had had a detrimental effect on their mental health - we wanted to change that.

Good Morning Britain has been encouraging everyone to get involved in our 1 Million Minutes campaign to help lonely people in the UK. We asked the nation to pledge time to help people who have lost a loved one and reach out in support of those who are lonely.
