With your support, we can keep working to make sure that no one has no one to turn to as they get older.
Thousands of people rely on us every year, and we can only be there with your support. You could help us be there to answer the next call.
What can you do to help?
There are many simple things you could do in your day-to-day life that take you only 5 minutes but can make a real difference to a lonely person.
- Start a conversation a quick chat about the weather or news, can brighten someone's day.
- Catchup with a neighbour simply saying hello over the fence can help older people feel part of their community.
- Phone an older relative for a chat a five minute conversation to you aunt or grandfather can make a huge difference to their day.
- Share a meal Older, isolated people often need a hand cooking for themselves, so why not take round an extra plate of hot home-cooked food, or a frozen portion they can heat up or microwave?
