We all feel lonely at certain points in our lives, but for some people that loneliness becomes chronic.
To help us discover who feels lonely and what can be done to help them feel more connected, we’d like as many people as possible to take part in the BBC Loneliness Experiment.
Whether or not you feel lonely at the moment, we’d love to hear from you.
If you can spare the time, we’d be very grateful, because the more people who take part, the better picture we can get of loneliness in society today and how to tackle it in the future.
