The Silver Line

How does The Silver Line help?

Loneliness can be tough, and many older people know this from experience. We need connection whatever our age – especially if we live alone or further away from family.

The Silver Line gives you the opportunity to exchange a brief, friendly word or enjoy a long, enriching conversation. The kind of call we offer depends very much on what you might want or need when you pick up the phone to talk to us.

The Silver Line service also helps by offering:

- Information and support
- Insight into how to access local groups and services
- A referral to regular friendship calls run by our partner charity, Age UK
- Protection and support for older people experiencing abuse and neglect.
