Cadbury Joins Forces with Age UK
Published on 01 October 2019 11:07 AM
Cadbury is joining forces with AgeUK to fight loneliness. We’re proud that Age UK is working with Cadbury to help draw attention to the 225,000 older people who often go a whole week without speaking to anyone.
Loneliness is a crisis in the UK. Being lonely affects your health, your wellbeing and the way you see yourself. It can make you feel invisible and forgotten. Age UK and Cadbury have joined forces to do something about it. And we need your help. Cadbury has donated the words from their Cadbury Dairy Milk bars –for every bar sold, 30p will go directly to Age UK to help provide vital services, support and friendship when older people need it most. We’re asking you to think about how you could donate your words to make a difference to older people near you.

Our Reconnections service is a local service which is tackling loneliness across Worcestershire.
With help loneliness can be something that you leave behind. With support to improve your mood, rebuild your confidence, and get you back on track, you can start to enjoy life again.
