Loneliness can have a devastating impact on the lives of older people. We believe that no one should feel alone. No one should feel that people simply don’t care.
Be a Friend empowers everyone, no matter your age, to take action. The simplest gestures of goodwill and compassion can mean more to a lonely older person than you realise. We can all make a difference.
A gift today would be a wonderful way to Be a Friend.
Our services providing companionship and support to some of the loneliest people in the country are completely free to those who need them. It is only your generosity that will ensure we have the funds needed to provide a regular phone call, a visit at home or social activities all year round.
Loneliness is expected to increase by 40% in the next 15 years, so it’s vital that we all act now and reach more people than ever before.
Please, help us shape a less lonely and more age friendly society -
