Did you know that loneliness increases the risk of dying early by over 25%?1
Nobody wants to feel lonely, but in an ever more digital world, those real-world, meaningful connections that we used to make with neighbours, friends, work colleagues and group activities are slowly being replaced with video chats and instant messaging.
Of course, as an online resource, we can’t go out there and make friends for you, but Adio groups are a safe place on the internet, where meaningful, empathetic and kindness-centric relationships are formed and often can translate into genuine, real-world alliances and friendships. We care about creating a space where people feel free to offer and receive support, and to share ideas, inspiration and their stories to truly touch lives.
We’ve made Adio super-easy to use for people of all ages – you don’t have to be a computer genius to get started and make new friends.
We can also help with practical advice to tackle loneliness and show you where to turn if you need help and support. Our webinars cover all major health issues and we have experts on hand to answer your questions and get you through the bad times and on to happier days.
