Independent Age


Over 1 million older people are lonely most of the time, often seeing no-one for days on end. Giving them the precious gift of friendship can make all the difference.

By asking people to sponsor a friend, they’re supporting Independent Age’s Friendship Service. Thanks to regular donations, a volunteer will visit or call an older person every week to listen, to laugh and to chat.

Our face-to-face materials and stewardship communications bring this charming proposition to life, demonstrating how sponsors can make this a better world in which to grow old.
