Loneliness kills

Imagine feeling all alone with no one to talk to, day after day. Imagine having no joy in your life. Imagine being lonely and isolated. Sadly, this is the reality for thousands of older people in Scotland. Christmas, just another day spent alone.

It is heart-breaking to think that the equivalent of one person on every street in Scotland feels lonely all or most of the time. Tragically, that’s one person on every street near you.

We urgently need your support. Together we can put a stop to loneliness in Scotland and be there for older people who need our help.

If you can, please give just 25 pence a week. Or make a donation today. Any amount – no matter how large or small – will support our life-saving work. Without kind-hearted people like you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our fight to end loneliness and be there for vulnerable older people who have no one else to turn to.

Every month we receive over 1,000 calls to our helpline from older people looking for support. Our team offer expert advice, information and friendship, and take the time to really listen. We are a lifeline to older people who desperately need our help.

Please donate and help older people in Scotland suffering from loneliness.

Help us be there

With your support we can be there for the older people that have no one else to turn to.
