1.2 million older people are chronically lonely. They’re desperate for your help.
You can change their lives by voting for Age UK as FirstGroup’s new chosen charity.
You might not have thought of voting for older people before. Not many people do, they’re often bottom of the pile.
Today, you can change this. Do something different, VOTE AGE UK.
Think of the older people you love: your granddad, grandma, your own parents. A vote for Age UK is a vote in their honour.
Watch the film below to hear how soul-destroying loneliness was for Florence and Roy, and how Age UK helped.

FirstGroup buses, trams and trains bring people together – that’s what you’re great at. Now Age UK needs you to help us bring older people together to feel less lonely.
Loneliness is a heart-breaking feeling. Millions of older people are all alone every single day, feeling like no one cares.
Loneliness doubles older people’s risk of dementia. You may well know from family experience just how devastating dementia can be.
