Join Age UK and John Lewis to help some of the million older people who go a month without speaking to anyone.

One million older people go for a month without speaking to anyone.

A £5 donation could help us answer a call. For older people with nowhere else to turn, getting in touch with Age UK Barnsley could open the door to many opportunities for companionship, advice and support.

Our befriending service can be a next step for an older person who calls. We match older people with like-minded volunteers for weekly companionship or regular ‘good day’ calls.

To an older person who hasn’t spoken to anyone in weeks, it really can make all the difference.

Donate to show someone they're loved this Christmas.

Thank you.
