Why support Age UK Solihull?

We are a local charity that provides advice, practical support and companionship to over 10,000 older people in Solihull each year.

As little as £5 could pay for a volunteer Befriender, like Brenda, to visit an older person like Josie.

Josie lives alone, and looks forward to Brenda's visit each week. She says, "We talk and discuss daily life. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a bit of socialization. It's the company...you feel good having someone to talk with."
