For some older people Christmas is just another day.

Help us be there for lonely older people in Powys - all year round.

Why it’s important to address loneliness

Over recent years we've gained a greater understanding of the impact loneliness has on our health.

We now know that, for example, the effect of loneliness and isolation can be as harmful to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, and is more damaging than obesity.

It is associated with depression, sleep problems, impaired cognitive health, heightened vascular resistance, hypertension, psychological stress and mental health problems.

Age Cymru Powys is committed to tackling loneliness - please join our campaign to ensure that no one in Powys is alone for Christmas.
