End loneliness today

Over 1 million older people in the UK feel lonely.

Feeling sorry isn't enough. For just 33p a day, we can put this right by providing a caring volunteer to call or visit someone every week. 

How your sponsorship will help

By sponsoring a friend you will be helping to provide trained, caring volunteers who will enjoy regular phone calls with lonely older people every week.

Your sponsorship will:

  • Help us train volunteers to understand the issues older people face.
  • Help us find a good match to make a better chance of friendship.
  • Help us get off to a good start by making sure the older person feels connected.
  • Help us ensure everything is going well when we check in to make sure the older person is happy with how things are going.

What happens next?

We will send you a welcome pack so you can read about the wonderful difference you’re making. After that, we’ll keep you up to date with regular emails and mailings so that you can hear directly from the older people you’re helping by sponsoring a friend.
