Let’s beat loneliness.

Add someone back into your life you’ve lost touch with.

Join our +1 movement.

This year has been the most disrupted and isolating we’ve ever experienced. So we’re asking you to do something really simple. To add someone back into your life that you’ve lost touch with via a video call, a WhatsApp, a voice note or through virtual gaming.

Let’s beat loneliness. Join BT’s +1 movement.
