Welcome to the Project!
In 2017 I started blogging about my solo living journey. After a bereavement the year before, I'd gone from loving my own space to spending far too much time alone with my own thoughts. Having struggled to find any advice or support online, I decided to write about my experience in the hope that it might be useful to someone else. I also started reaching out online to the small handful of other bloggers, researchers and community leaders working in the solo living space.
The response has been beyond anything I could have imagined! I realised that there were millions of people out there just like me - and that each year, thousands more people start living alone too. But the global growth in solo living - with all of its quirks, freedoms and challenges - STILL isn't something being widely acknowledged or talked about. That's a shame, because solo living can be great! At the Project, we're here to help with the steep learning curve that most people go through when they first start out. If you're new to living alone, feel free to browse our resource library, join one of our online communities, and of course read the blog! Our monthly newsletter has the latest.
As the leading voice on all things solo living, the Project is now regularly approached by universities, charities, community groups, media outlets, businesses and more, and we love sharing what we know! We provide training, advice and consultancy support on everything from solo living 'mythbusting,' to the single / solo experience, to loneliness and connection. If this is something you think you might be interested in, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a chat.
Happy solo-ing! xx
