We know from the older people who have joined The Silver Line – who chose to be called Silver Liners – that just a few minutes of your time can make a big difference.
We’re all about the power of human contact and volunteers are vital to The Silver Line’s commitment to reduce loneliness and isolation, and improve the lives of older people.
The facts are startling:
As a Silver Line volunteer you can bring invaluable skills and experiences, along with the capacity to help make a difference, while being our link to communities and older people across the UK.
We have hundreds of older people who need a Silver Line Friend today.
Could you spare a few minutes every week to be that person to share an experience, enjoy a joke, or just chat with them?
