A national campaign to help learn more about loneliness.
TimeWeTalked was a campaign set up to help learn more about loneliness by answering a completely anonymous survey and to provide a space for people to talk about their experiences.
With the help of the community, we were able to gather vital information about loneliness from over 1,700 responses which helped us launch new initiatives to fight loneliness.
