Hft | Your experience of loneliness and isolation

Your experience of loneliness and isolation


We would like to hear from people who have a learning disability, about their experiences of loneliness and isolation.

You might feel lonely or isolated if you have no-one to talk to or feel left out.

Hearing your stories will help us find out what makes people with a learning disability feel lonely and isolated. It will also help us to find out what can make people feel less lonely.

Your stories will help us make a campaign to try to stop loneliness and isolation among people with a learning disability.

If you are 18 or over and want to share your views and experiences of loneliness and isolation please fill in the form below.
