Founding Programme

Our Founding Programme recognises the partners who have supported The Silver Line in the first two years of operation.  They will continue to benefit from association with the charity in perpetuity thanks to this early support.

The programme has three levels of involvement and Founding Partners are invited to join our prestigious Stakeholder Council.

A complete list of our Founders are listed on our Partners page.  They include:

BT

We know the phone can be a lifeline and we are proud to have long supported people who need extra help with their communications.”    Niall Dunne, BT Chief Sustainability Officer.  BT’s generous ongoing support, both financial and in-kind Has helped make the pilot and national launch of The Silver Line possible.

Swiss Re

“The Swiss Re Foundation is committed to addressing a range of social and problems.  Ageing healthily is one of the key topics under Swiss Re’s ‘Funding longer lives’ agenda; so understanding more about people as they become old, in terms of their way of life and well-being, is important for our business.

Our support for The Silver Line is therefore very relevant to our industry, and it is a long term partnership we are keen to develop in the UK.”   Russell Higginbotham, CEO UK.

Consultus

Consultus Care and Nursing has provided carers and nurses to live-in with people in their homes for over 50 years.

The Silver Line delivers an essential befriending service, particularly for anyone living alone. We are pleased and humbled to be able to help even more people in later life through our continuing sponsorship of The Silver Line.’ Peter Seldon, Managing Director.
