There are nine million lonely people in the UK and four million of them are older people. Many older people find constant loneliness hardest to overcome. They lack the friendship and support we all need. Help us change that.
"Loneliness can drain away your sense of self or effect your social cues. If we're all going to be physically distancing then talking on the phone is going to become even more vital."

If you find the screen hard to read, you can switch the colour scheme into "High contrast" mode by clicking the small "screen" icon in the top right of the page. You can also increase the font size if you are having trouble with reading text.
