WORKING TOGETHER TO TACKLE LONELINESS
The Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness is starting a national conversation about the scale and impact of loneliness in the UK.
SPOTLIGHT ON REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS
6 - 29 OCTOBER
Refugees arrive fleeing war and persecution. But it can be hard for them to rebuild their lives, often unable to speak the language and without social networks we can sometimes take for granted. From 6 - 29 October, Refugee Action will be shining a spotlight on loneliness among refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

About Loneliness

What is Jo Cox Loneliness About

We all have the right to be happy, accepted, and loved, and Jo Cox was fiercely fighting for those rights. She was a Member of Parliament and Labour Party until her murder in 2016. Because politics is involved, even people that do tend to change crucial problems in our society get in the way and get hurt, in this case murdered. Jo Cox Loneliness is an organization following the footsteps of Jo Cox and what she stood for. Helping those in need in UK, and allowing people to see that loneliness is a real problem is truly inspiring and noble.

The Jo Cox Foundation

Things that Jo Cox Foundation battles for are everywhere around you and deciding to act instead of ignoring and hoping for the best is what helps the cause. Thinking that individual effort won’t matter is exactly the type of opinion we need to eliminate. It’s quite the opposite actually. Every little bit helps and when people unite and put their hands together, great things can happen.
