No one should have no one
No matter what your age, being loved and cared for is important to all of us. At Age UK Kensington & Chelsea, we believe no one should have no one. Yet for 40,000 older people in London loneliness is a daily reality. And we don’t just mean at Christmas.
Across England, 1.9 million older people say they often feel ignored or invisible. We need to make sure support is available for all older people who find their lives adversely affected by loneliness or isolation, whatever the time of year.
Here in Kensington & Chelsea we’re working as hard as we can to help older people face the different challenges that growing older brings, and with your help we can work to make sure no one in later life need be alone or isolated.
Whether it’s through our befriending services or lunch clubs, our information and advice around getting the financial support people need to make the most of their later years, or just being somewhere to turn when things get too tough to cope with on your own, Age UK K&C provides crucial companionship, advice and support to hundreds of people every year.
How you can help
We want to make sure that we can continue to be here for those who need us the most, but we can’t do any of this without your help. If you want to change the lives of older people in Kensington & Chelsea, click here to find out how together we can make a difference.
