We are here for people with no one to turn to, 365 days a year

We answer hundreds of thousands of calls to our advice line every year. Calls from older people who are desperately lonely, living in crisis or who simply don't know what to do next. We provide expert support and advice to make sure they know they're not alone.

We are here every day of the year. Even on Christmas.

Our work can only continue with your support

We rely on the generous donations of people like you to keep being there for the people who need us. People like George, who found himself struggling to cope alone after his wife Dot died. 

No one should have no one to turn to. Not at Christmas, not at any time of 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."
