Support
from the Community

During the pandemic our work supporting older people experiencing loneliness increased dramatically. We work hard to ensure that people are helped quickly and efficiently whilst still maintaining a professional standard. We really value the support our 500+ volunteers who are integral to our service. With your help we can continue to support life-changing befriending matches which are proven to help people feel ‘like I want to live again’ and like they ‘have purpose’, whilst also reaching, connecting and engaging with many more older people within the communities in which we serve.

COVID19 has changed the way we all go about our daily lives but sadly our elders are some of the most affected by the impact of lockdown. The importance of human connection has been amplified like never before so we consider it a privilege to provide positive solutions to overcoming loneliness despite the restrictions in place at this time. With your help we can continue to make a difference.
