    Cadbury is joining forces with Age UK to fight loneliness

    We’re proud that Age UK is working with Cadbury to help draw attention to the 225,000 older people who often go a whole week without speaking to anyone.

    Loneliness is a crisis in the UK. Being lonely affects your health, your wellbeing and the way you see yourself. It can make you feel invisible and forgotten.

    Age UK and Cadbury have joined forces to do something about it. And we need your help. Could you donate your words and volunteer to visit and befriend someone who is lonely and isolated
