Get involved Fundraising Fundraise for us Fundraise for us Britain is the loneliness capital of Europe. Loneliness and social isolation are severely detrimental to our health, and increase the chance of developing longer-term health conditions such as depression, dementia and heart disease. Unfortunately, over 9 million people in the UK – almost a fifth of the population – say they are always or often lonely (British Red Cross and Co-Op, 2016), and millions more will experience loneliness throughout their lifetime. But we can, and we are, doing something about it. Watch our video to find out more: Team Carr Gomm is our latest fundraising campaign. Joining Team Carr Gomm may be taking on a challenge of your own, supporting someone else in theirs, or donating directly towards the campaign. Every penny raised will go directly towards our work connecting people and tackling loneliness and isolation in communities across Scotland. Join Team Carr Gomm today!
