Effervescent are looking for young people aged 13-22 to help design this year’s national Lonely Not Alone campaign. This opportunity is open to young people from all over the UK to lead an awesome campaign that will help young people just like you talk more openly about loneliness.

Do you like being creative and coming up with ideas?

Do you want to make friends and learn new skills from professional campaigners and creatives?

Do you want to make a difference to lonely young people after a year of lockdowns and Covid?


If this sounds like you, read more and complete the online application form on Effervescent’s website.


The deadline for applications is 16th March 2021. The design group will work together over Zoom between Monday 12th and Saturday 17th April 2021, so you can take part regardless of where you live. Lonely Not Alone will launch later in 2021 and the co-designers typically continue to meet and chat through to the Autumn to build on their April ideas.
