Celebrate a life well-lived

How your support will make a big difference

The kind donations we receive, help us to provide vital advice and companionship to more older people living in fear, anxiety and isolation. We’re able to do so in many wonderful ways. Like our 1,500 kind volunteers, who have given the gift of friendship to lonely older people through regular visits or phone calls. Or our free helpline, which offers guidance to older people and their families about issues such as money, benefits, dealing with authorities and independent living. We also have free guides to help older people make informed choices, so they’re aware of issues such as scamming. All of this helps to ensure older people can grow old with dignity, choice and control, so their lives can be well lived too.

Two important ways to remember your loved one


Set up a Tribute Fund page

You can set up your own Tribute Fund page to celebrate the life of your loved one. It’s quick and easy to do and is a wonderful way for you to honour their memory, by helping other older people in great need of support.
