No One Should Have No One To Turn To
Published on 22 November 2018 03:56 PM
Who do you turn to when times get tough?
Your partner, perhaps, or your family and closest friends. The people you can rely on. The people who are always there for you.
Imagine if you had no one to turn to.
No one to ask when you just don't know what to do next. No one to be there for you when you're facing a crisis. No one to talk to when you're feeling desperately lonely.
Over 2.5 million older people in the UK feel they have no one to turn to for help and support.
For millions of older people, this is the reality. Every day. Even on Christmas day.
At Age UK Bolton, we believe no one should have no one to turn to. Not at Christmas. Not ever.
With your help we can work to make sure no one struggles without the support they need.
Here in Bolton, we’re working as hard as we can all year round to help older people face the different challenges that growing older brings.
Whether it’s through our expert information and advice, our befriending services, our activities and classes, or just being somewhere to turn when things get too tough to cope with on your own, Age UK Bolton provides crucial companionship, advice and support to thousands of people every year.
