No One Should Have No One To Turn To

Published on 04 December 2018 04:00 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 203,000 older people in the South West and 2.5 million 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.

At Age UK Somerset, we believe no one should have no one to turn to. Not ever.

With your help we can work to make sure no one struggles without the support they need.

We’re working as hard as we can across Somerset and North Somerset, all year round to help older people face the different challenges that growing older brings.

Whether it’s through our expert information and advice, our befriending services, our toenail cutting service or our Ageing Well social and activity sessions or just being somewhere to turn when things get too tough to cope with on your own, Age UK Somerset provides crucial companionship, advice and support to thousands of people every year.

How you can help

We want to make sure that we can continue to be here for those who need us the most, but we can’t do any of this without your help.

If you want to help change the lives of older people in Somerset and North Somerset, please visit our Get Involved page to find out how you can make a difference.

With your support, we can keep working to make sure that no one has no one to turn to as they get older.
