It's a shocking statistic, but over 1 million older people in the UK are lonely.
With your help, Age UK can continue to reach out to more lonely, isolated older people like Jim and Ruth, with the support they so desperately need.
How your support could help:
- Good Day Calls are part of our national telephone befriending service, providing regular calls to bring friendship into the lives of lonely older people. Our Good Day service made over 80,000 minutes of calls last year.
- Our free national advice line, which answers more than 230,000 calls for support every year. When someone feels worried or lonely, knowing that there is someone to turn to for help can be transformative.
We're dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life and we simply couldn't do that without help from our supporters – your gift will make a difference to the lives of older people in the UK.
Age UK provides a range of services and your gift will go wherever the need is greatest.
