We give free, impartial advice over the telephone for older people, their families and carers on issues such as care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.
Regular calls and visits
With the help of our committed volunteers, we provide friendship services to relieve loneliness and isolation. These are delivered through phone calls, visits, telephone discussion groups and more, enabling older people to feel more connected to their local community.
We want the UK to become the best country in the world in which to grow older. We campaign to ensure people can enjoy a financially secure, healthy, active and connected older age.
Whatever your talents, you can use them to help improve the lives of older people. We have a number of volunteer roles available to suit you, from regularly visiting or calling older people, to helping to support our new recruits. We'll give you the training necessary and also cover your expenses.
