Share the story of someone you know
We've all got a story to tell. We're working with Cadbury to celebrate the life stories of older people.
Join us in celebrating and older person and share what you think makes them amazing using our simple online form. Here are some stories from other wonderful older people to inspire you.
We've all experienced loneliness at some point – especially this year. But for 1.4 million older people in the UK, loneliness is a daily reality. And we are missing out on their stories, words and wisdom.
That’s why Age UK is here. We provide advice, support and friendship to older people who have no one to turn to.
Saffron volunteers for our Telephone Befriending Service and shared this story with us:
"My telephone friend Paul and I have had weekly calls since March 2020. Paul is a lively, lovely, engaging character. He has so many layers has been through so much pain and yet has so much warmth, insight and cheeky humour. Thank you Age UK for your amazing initiative and for allowing the younger generation to learn from their beautiful elders."
The Age UK Advice Line is available every day of the year to provide answers and reassurance when they’re needed most. And our telephone friendship service provides thousands of lonely and isolated older people with a regular chat, sometimes the only conversation they'll have all week.
Without kind donations from people like you, we wouldn’t be able to provide vital help and support to the millions of older people who rely on us each year.
It's quick and simple to share a story using our online form, and there’s a chance we’ll feature it on this page as part of the campaign.
