Living alone through choice or circumstance

Solo Living is the original and leading voice talking about the living alone and single life experience. We are a community-driven resource changing perceptions around what has, until now been a misunderstood way of life. Solo Living coined the term ‘living alone through choice or circumstance’ in recognition of the different reasons why people are living alone today. We talked about the living alone experience when no one else knew how to because, for years, living alone and single life was not recognised as a positive lifestyle.

Core to our activity is the belief that to live well alone, looking after our emotional and physical wellbeing combined with living sustainability is essential. Our unique approach to solo living and living alone is an irresistible blend of how to live well!

With over 8 million people living alone in the UK today – a trend impacting Northern Europe and North America, living solo is thought to be the biggest social change in decades affecting countries worldwide. We are inspired and led by our community. We engage and share the wisdom and experiences of people navigating life solo, many of whom are also living a single life. We endeavour to tell your stories.

'One in three households in the UK and beyond are occupied by one person! Living alone is a new norm.'

Whether living alone through choice or circumstance, solo living will, for some, be a new and unknown adventure – most likely a temporary stage in life.  Others will undoubtedly be experienced and seasoned with the joys, opportunities and challenges of living alone. While for many, solo living will turn out to be a longer-lasting stage in life, and increasingly for many, living alone and single life will be a positive lifestyle choice. We also know that solo living does not necessarily mean being single or living without children.

As modern lifestyles change, because of increasing demands on our time and the way we conduct relationships – Solo Living hopes to offer a useful resource to the growing number of independently-minded people who do spend more time on their own whether they are in a relationship or not, or have children.

Solo Living also works with brands to create useful content for people who are living alone, single and navigating life solo. By collaborating with brands, we aim to improve the understanding of the living alone and single experience and close the gap between the lifestyle and interests of Solo consumers and the marketplace.

Solo Living endeavours to be the one place you can all tap into and feel assured you are not alone – your own solo living experience is likely shared by many.
