Comfort Dolls are provided free to dementia patients by Age UK Wolverhampton. They can have a major therapeutic effect for patients, alleviating some of their suffering, and are greatly appreciated by patients, their families and carers.

Our comfort dolls are made entirely by volunteers, and distributed by our staff and volunteers working with New Cross Hospital and in other dementia care settings.

We rely on public support and goodwill to enable us to continue to provide Comfort Dolls for people who need them, as well as supporting the rest of the work that Age UK Wolverhampton does to help older people living in Wolverhampton, as they face the challenges of ageing.

If you feel that you would like to help, there are many ways in which you can do so including:

  • making a one-off or regular donation,
  • a gift in your will,
  • Amazon Smile (which costs you nothing!), and many other ways.
