Story

Over 15.3 million people are aged 60 or over in the UK and 3.64 million of those people live alone. Loneliness can be as harmful to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and can increase your risk of premature death by up to 25%. Every day, Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire hears from local people who are experiencing devastating life events... ITS OUR VISION TO CREATE A WORLD IN WHICH OLDER PEOPLE CAN FLOURISH Age UK LSL offers a huge variety of services to people age 50+ range from our incredible, completely free Information & Advice service which saw our advisors help service users reclaim over £1.1 million last year, to vital befriending services ensuring no one is alone. WHAT CAN YOU DO? - £5 will pay for a befriender to visit and help alleviate loneliness for one day. - £10 provides benefit advice to help older people have enough money for heating. - £20 pays for a volunteer to visit an isolated individual once a week for an entire month.
