Welcome to the Project!

You're here because you're living alone - or you know someone who is. You might be feeling a bit overwhelmed or unsure where to start, and you're looking for advice on how to approach this completely new way of life.

I hear you! Back in 2017 I was living alone and really struggling to find my feet. I felt like I was the only person in the world having a hard time getting to grips with solo living, and there was absolutely nothing online to help. It took me a long time to build the life I love today, and it felt really important to me to share what I'd learnt so that other people could get there more quickly!

This toolkit grew out of my experience, and the experiences of those around me. We've kept it simple - a straightforward, no-nonsense and completely free collection of articles, links and downloads which you can access as often as you need to as you start your solo living journey. If we're missing something let us know, and we'll do our best to fill in the gap.

If you're completely new to solo living, then our 'new to living alone' section, our online communities and our semi-regular newsletters are the best places to start. The very best of luck on your solo living journey - we will be here every step of the way!
