Who you're helping by taking part


Your support allows us to be there for people like Lesley, who is part of our Telephone Friendship Service.

Lesley said “I was at a loss after losing my husband and friends had disappeared. I really didn’t know what to do with myself. Then I joined Age UK’s Telephone Friendship Service, and it really changed everything for me.

Now I have Karen, we talk about all sorts, and I couldn’t do without her. She makes me smile and I look forward to the phone ringing every week because I know I’ll get to laugh. Age UK have been a lifeline, and I can’t imagine not having Karen in my life."

Thanks to you, Age UK can provide life-changing services for older people like Lesley.
