Solos, singles and people living alone face specific challenges and opportunities, and have incredible strengths and unique experience. Through The Living Well Alone Project, we have built deep knowledge across the emotional, practical and psychological aspects of solo living, and regularly gather insight from across our incredible community.
We are able to offer a wider range of consulting services to organisations looking to find out more about those living solo, to help tackle some of the toughest issues facing these communities, and to design better services and products. We work with community and educational organisations (including universities) through our social enterprise The Living Well Alone Project CIC, and with brands / businesses via our commercial consultancy, Solo Insights Ltd.

For those working on connection and loneliness in local communities
Community leaders are more and more aware of issues relating to social isolation and loneliness. We can offer training and facilitated workshops at local, regional and national level for community leaders / organisations working with people living alone. Our training covers:
mythbusting solo living - unpacking the 'sad and lonely' stereotype, and sharing what we know about people who live alone
looking at who REALLY experiences loneliness, and why and how this happens
the role community leaders can play in tackling loneliness and social isolation
why asset-based and psychological approaches are key in understanding and tackling social isolation and loneliness
Our workshops are designed to help you dig deeper into the specific challenges in your communities, and to agree principles for future service design.
For student unions and student support services teams
Young people are more likely to experience loneliness than any other age group, and there are particular risks for students living away from home for the first time. We can offer:
training courses and workshops on loneliness / connectedness and social isolation for staff working with young people living away from home for the first time
group coaching / training for students
leaflet / handout / welcome pack development
strategic reviews of current student support offers
student focus groups
