No one should have no one

No one should have no one

No matter what your age, being loved and cared for is important to all of us.
But during Christmas the companionship and support of friends and family seems to mean even more than usual – which is why loneliness feels even harsher.

At Age UK Coventry, we believe no one should have no one. Not at Christmas. Not ever.

Yet for 60,000 older people in the Midlands  loneliness is a daily reality. And we don’t just mean at Christmas.

Feeling invisible

In England, 1.9million older people often feel ignored or invisible. In Coventry loneliness is a reality for over 5000 older people, day in day out.

We need to change that and ensure help is available for all those older people who find their lives adversely affected by loneliness or illness or poverty, whatever the time of year.

Here in Age UK Coventry we’re working hard all year round to help older people face the different challenges that growing older brings, and with your help we can work to make sure no one in later life need be alone or isolated.

Whether it’s through our befriending services or friendship clubs, our Craft and Computer centre groups, or our physical activity classes or just being somewhere to turn when things get too tough to cope with on your own, Age UK Coventry provides crucial companionship, advice and support to thousands of people every year.
