No matter what your age, being loved and cared for is important to all of us.

No one should have no one at ChristmasBut during Christmas the companionship and support of friends and family seems to mean even more than usual – which is why loneliness feels even harsher.

At Age UK Leicestershire and Rutland we believe no one should have no one at Christmas.

Yet for approximately 66,100 older people in the East Midlands loneliness is a daily reality. And we don’t just mean at Christmas.

How you can help

If you want to change the lives of older people in our area at Christmas please consider making a donation.

We’re working hard to give older people the fundamental things everyone deserves and which most of us take for granted without a second thought: advice and support at the times it is most needed, friendship and someone to share a laugh with from time to time.
 
If you agree with us that a life with no one is really no life at all, then
