Good Morning Britain supports Home-Start UK with new 1 Million Minutes campaign

Home-Start will be supported by Good Morning Britain (GMB) throughout December with the 1 Million Minutes campaign to help those who are experiencing loneliness.

The campaign is asking viewers to pledge their time to the eight chosen charities looking for volunteers to connect and make people feel less alone.​ Viewers will be able to pledge their time with a minimum of 60 minutes one off opportunity as well as longer volunteering opportunities.

Home-Start supports families with young children through challenging times. Families struggling with isolation, loneliness and many other issues receive the support of trained volunteers, either individually in their own home or as part of a group, who work alongside them to give non-judgmental, compassionate and confidential support.

Sally Munday, Volunteer Practice Manager at Home-Start UK said “We are extremely proud to be one of the charities GMB have chosen for their campaign. The cost-of-living crisis has had a huge impact on the time people have to volunteer so this is an important opportunity to help make sure Home-Starts have the volunteers they need to support more families, and to explain how vital the support of a Home-Start volunteer can be.”

Alongside GMB presenters, familiar faces across ITV, celebrities and influencers alike will also get involved and show their support both on air and online.

It has never been more important for us to talk about feeling lonely, especially following the acute isolation the cost of living crisis is currently causing millions of people throughout the country. And so the message for this year is, it won’t cost you a penny to save someone from loneliness.
