The Big Hush
Help tackle loneliness, one conversation at a time. Could you take part in a sponsored silence for Loneliness Awareness Week? 13th-17th June 2022
Work right in the heart of the community and gain key skills by becoming a paid Wellbeing Support Worker.
"I feel proud to work as part of such an incredible team. It is a privilege to meet and support so many older people and I love how diverse and flexible my days are. Knowing my visits make such a difference to so many, is beyond rewarding."
Are you finding it hard to care for yourself or a relative? We offer up to 6 weeks of free support in an older persons home, which can include shopping, cooking and housework as well as liaising with GP's and other services in the area.
You might be worrying how you will heat your home this winter or need advice on a relatives care. Our Information & Advice team have a wealth of experience dealing with any issues that affect later life, so let us put your mind at rest.
The Pandemic has made some people feel increasingly isolated and lonely for many reasons. So whether you want to learn how to video call your family, find local support groups or you'd like a regular chat with someone, don't hesitate to contact us.

Our volunteers have been delivering shopping, telephoning lonely older people, delivering activity packs, doing doorstep chats and generally doing good in the community. If you have some time to give we would love to hear from you.
We are deeply concerned. 48% of people who answered our survey said they had lost confidence with many more worried about the future. Please donate today to our Confidence Appeal.
We need your support more than ever during the pandemic. So whether you run, bake, cycle or make, we have lots of fundraising ideas for you. You can be sure, your money will go back into helping the older people in your community.
