1 Million Minutes 2022: Pledge your time to help end loneliness

Good Morning Britain’s 1 Million Minutes campaign is back!

It has never been more important for us to talk about feeling lonely, especially following the acute isolation the cost of living crisis is currently causing millions of people throughout the country.

Now in its seventh year, the initiative aims to encourage viewers to pledge their time to charities that tackle the issues of loneliness. Since launching in 2016, a staggering 404 million minutes of time have been donated to charities in need of volunteers who can connect with those who feel alone.

As well as supporting ITV's Britain Get Talking campaign, we’ve teamed up with charities who are all doing incredible work including Alzheimer’s Society, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Grief Encounter, Re-engage, Royal Voluntary Service, Sands, Home-Start and the Chatty Cafe Scheme.

Samaritans is available round the clock, every single day of the year. Call 116 123 for free or visit www.samaritans.org to get advice.

You can find help and more information on itv.com/helplines.
