“We’ve helped older people connect with lunch clubs, health services and face-to-face friendship services. Silver Line Connects has opened the door to opportunities just beyond an older person’s doorstep and we are there to help with every step along the way. As demand for our Silver Line Connects service grows, we urgently need volunteers to help us with the requests we get through – all you need is a want to help older people and find the best solutions.” – Dame Esther Rantzen, Founder of The Silver Line

Imagine being confined to your home or moving to a new area where you know nobody and not knowing where to get your groceries – this is where we can help find the best options for our Silver Liners.
