- We try to help you sort out matters which are causing you worry
- We can give advice or find out information for you
- We can fill in benefit forms, open letters for you or make telephone calls on your behalf if you wish
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from a bit of company or the chance to have a chat on a regular basis we can help you find a befriending service.

A client's story
The Collaborative Care Team is working hard to support older people during this difficult time.
Our Support Worker was able to help a client who recently had his mobile phone stolen. She put out a plea on Facebook asking if anyone had an old mobile phone that they no longer used. Within an hour, the Support Worker had been contacted by a Facebook friend who had kindly purchased a brand new, basic phone and top-up credit for the client, and had donated it to us in support. Our Support Worker’s friend said “What a fantastic job Age UK Northamptonshire are doing for the older and vulnerable people in Northamptonshire. I just wanted to help".
Our thanks to all involved.
