The Silver Line Helpline is a free, confidential telephone service just for older people.
We provide friendship, conversation and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes

We need connection whatever our age – especially if we live alone or further away from family. The Silver Line Helpline gives older people the opportunity to exchange a friendly word, access support, or enjoy a long enriching conversation.

How we can help

I used The Silver Line every night for about three weeks, and it really kept me going. They’re lovely, I’ve not spoken to anybody that I haven’t felt has been listening or engaging. I can put my hand on my heart and say I don’t think I’d be here without them.
