Now more than ever, no one in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire should have no one
More than 850,000 older people could be spending this Christmas alone - including many in Notts and Nottinghamshire. Now, more than ever, we must not fail those who need us most.
After what’s been a terrifying and isolating year for many, older people in Notts and Nottinghamshire are looking ahead to a Christmas like no other in living memory.
Before the outbreak of coronavirus, we were already facing a loneliness epidemic amongst older people. But as a result of the pandemic, this crisis has intensified.
With the ongoing threat of coronavirus and restrictions curbing many people’s already limited social contact, this Christmas could be the loneliest yet for the older people most in need in our communities.
Now more than ever, we need your support
We’re working hard to relieve the isolation and despair felt by so many older people. Every day, older people turn to Age UK Notts for practical and emotional support - and this Christmas will be no different.
Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been supporting older people through our Safe & Sound service, Veterans at Home service, over-the-phone IT Training, Telephone Befriending and more. Our services have never been in such great demand - and we only expect that demand to rise as we head into this challenging and isolating Christmas.
We cannot let the older people of Notts and Nottinghamshire suffer alone. Not this year. Not ever.
But we need your help urgently so we can be there for all those who are depending on us this Christmas.
