No one should have no one to turn to

You can help provide a lifeline for vulnerable older people

Will you help Age UK be there when we’re needed most?

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 with when you're feeling desperately lonely.

For people like George, that's the reality

And that's why we are here.

To help. To support. To listen. 

To be there when we're needed most. 

Right now, more than 2.5 million older people have no one to turn to for help and support. 

We need you to help us be there. 

We are here to help 365 days a year 

The Age UK Advice line answers hundreds of thousands of calls for help every year. It's free to call and completely confidential. 

Whether it's dedicated information to help someone cope with a bereavement, the right number to call to arrange help after leaving hospital, or simply the chance to talk over a problem at home, we are here.

Lines are open 8am to 7pm. Every day. Even on Christmas.

Age UK Advice Line: 0800 055 6112

Lines are open 8am-7pm, 365 days a year.

Maggie explains the difference the Age UK Advice line makes

"Many people come to us when they are at crisis point.

It's really rewarding when you put the phone down and know you have given someone the tools to change their situation."
