Together with ITV's Good Morning Britain, we are looking for people like you who can pledge some of their time to help other people. Will you take one of our pledges?

Pledge 1: 30 minutes

Visit an older person you know

Visit a neighbour, a family member or a friend who may be lonely to see how they are. Loneliness is a huge issue for older people in the UK especially during the winter months so dropping in on an older person that you know could help them feel less isolated.

Pledge 2: 90 Minutes

Help us spread the word about our work with our loneliness pack

Help us by handing out our ‘If you’re feeling lonely’ guides in places where older people can access them easily. It has advice on simple things to try which could help reduce loneliness, and information on where to go for help.

Pledge 3: 120 Minutes a Month

Become a volunteer

Join our team of Independent Age volunteers by pledging to regularly visit or call an older person once a week to help relieve loneliness and isolation.
