No one should have no one
Help us end loneliness
In the run-up to Christmas 2016, Age UK released this TV advert which sees acclaimed actor James Bolam telling the real-life story of Roy, an older man who became lonely after losing his wife of more than 40 years.
No matter what your age, being loved and cared for is important to all of us.
At Age UK North Tyneside, we believe no one should have no one.
Yet for approximately 29,300 older people in the North East of England loneliness is a daily reality.
