Why make a donation to Age UK Suffolk?
Each year we support around 21,000 people living in Suffolk aged over 65 years. Currently only 45% of our income comes from statutory sources, we have to generate the remaining 55% ourselves.
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 15,000 people in Suffolk, or an average of 10 people per square mile.
Our services help to combat loneliness, enable people to remain living independently at home and offer them someone to talk to and somewhere to go so they never have to feel alone.
£10 could help an older person to remain living independently through a one hour meeting with a trained advisor.
£30 could pay for benefits advice that helps older people receive their financial entitlement, improving their quality of life and meet the cost of living.
£50 could fund a year’s telephone befriending providing friendship and support for an older person who feels lonely or isolated.
