1 Million Minutes

Alzheimer’s Research UK is once again thrilled to announce its support of the ITV campaign, 1 Million Minutes, to help end loneliness.

Good Morning Britain’s 1 Million Minutes provides the opportunity to pledge your time to volunteer to help end loneliness and isolation.

Pledge your time, sign up today and join others in making 2024 a brighter year across our communities.

There are many faces of loneliness. Joining a Cheer Squad is one great way to connect with others. Whoever you are, whatever your circumstances, we come together as one community to support and celebrate. Find out more about being a Cheer Squad volunteer.

Loneliness can strike us all. Becoming part of our Event volunteer team can help you build community. Being part of a team can be the start of something new and exciting. Find out more about joining our Event volunteer team.
