Why make a donation to Age UK Suffolk?
Each year we support thousands of people living in Suffolk aged over 65 years. All of our income is generated through our fundraising, retail and trading activities, and it costs £2million each year to offer these vital and often lifechanging services.
All of our services are focused on improving the lives of older people across Suffolk. With the knowledge that we live in an ageing population, we need to ensure that we have services and support for older people, not just for now, but for many years in the future.
We know that 1 in 10 lonely older people in Suffolk don’t have a meaningful conversation with a friend or family member in a month – that’s 17,000 people in Suffolk. Loneliness is recognised as being as bad for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
