No one should have no one to turn to
Published on 07 November 2018 04:50 PM
Who do you turn to when times get tough?
Your partner, perhaps. Or your family and closest friends. The people you can rely on. The people who are always there for you.
Imagine if you had no one to turn to.
No one to ask when you just don't know what to do next. No one to be there for you when you're facing a crisis. No one to talk to when you're feeling desperately lonely.
Over 2.5 million older people in the UK feel they have no one to turn to for help and support.
For millions of older people, this is the reality. Every day. Even on Christmas.
