Age UK Reading & John Lewis
We're proud to launch our new appeal with John Lewis to help some of the million older people who go a month without speaking to anyone.
Age UK Reading is an independent charity run by and for local people. Every day we provide vital services, information and support to thousands of older people – of all ages and backgrounds.
Whether you need advice, access to services or want to get involved with your community we can help.
We provide vital services in the community
Our befrienders tackle loneliness by making regular visits and calls to isolated members of the community.
We run a number of lunch clubs across the town to provide a good hot meal and a social outlet for older people.
Our Happy Feet service provides toenail cutting and basic footcare for clients at a range of community locations across the town.
