Could you help us be there for an older person who is struggling?
Across the UK thousands of older people are facing the harsh effects of the cold weather without the support they need.
Many older people just like Ruth. Ruth is 82 and suffers from multiple health issues. During winter, she can only afford to heat one room. So she spends every minute in there, often worrying how she will get through the winter months.
Unable to get the right support, it can feel as though there is no one to turn to.
Thousands of people like Ruth desperately need our support.
Poor housing, high energy prices and ill health can make winter a difficult time for many older people. Last year we received almost 7,000 calls from people worried about heating their homes. We expect the number of people needing our help this year to continue to rise.
Your gift of £10 can help us be there for more vulnerable older people, whenever they need us.
For the older people with no one to turn to, our advice line, information guides and other services can be a lifeline. Whether it’s offering advice on keeping warm in winter or providing a friendly call to show that someone cares, your gift will make a real difference.
Age UK provides a range of services and your gift will go wherever the need is greatest.
