Age UK Hull - Supporting Older People
Lockdown may have lifted, but loneliness continues amongst older people. Older people are still in the mist of social isolation and loneliness, maybe even more now than in the beginning. Although we can see light at the end of the tunnel there is still darkness for so many.
The Telephone Befriending service aims to reduce loneliness for people aged 50 or over, by providing a regular telephone call at a time which is convenient to the person. The regular telephone call allows the person to enjoy general conversation on subjects that interest them. Last year we made more than 12,000 wellbeing calls to vulnerable Service Users, people struggling with loneliness we supported these calls through our through our Telephone Befriending Service.
Age UK Hull offers a free and confidential information and advice service for older people, their families and carers. We off help and support on a variety of issues including activities, crime prevention, utilities, housing, health and social issues, personal and care problems and many other issues that may affect you or the lives of the other members of your family.

Your donation could help us reach even more of the 1.4 million older people who urgently need our support.
