Why support Independent Age?

More than 1 million older people say they are often or always lonely. As well as feeling cut off from friends and family, it can mean that when difficulties arise, they feel they have no one to turn to.

Your support can make such a significant difference for an older person, because thanks to our supporters, we can provide regular visits and telephone calls from one of our caring volunteers. We can also help with worries they might be facing, whether they’re about finances, mobility, or other day-to-day issues, so they don’t have to cope with difficulties alone.  Read more about how we help.

How you will be supported

By trekking for Independent Age you’ll receive fantastic support from the moment you sign up all the way until you cross that finish line. We will provide you with:

  • An Independent Age top
  • Fundraising and training support from the Independent Age Events team
