Players of People’s Postcode Lottery

Since our partnership began in 2016, players of People’s Postcode Lottery have supported The Silver Line Helpline with an incredible £3,150,000.

Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we’ve been able to support more older people experiencing loneliness and isolation across the UK.

People who call The Silver Line Helpline have been able to pick up the phone and enjoy a chat, access vital support, and feel all the wonderful benefits that come from talking to a friend.

The support from players of People's Postcode Lottery means we can continue to support the older people who need us the most and for that, we are extremely grateful.

The Silver Line was founded in 2016 by Dame Esther Rantzen. As a charity, we rely on donations and the generosity of supporters like players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

People’s Postcode Lottery is a lottery operator in which people play with their postcodes to win cash prizes whilst raising money for charities and good causes across Great Britain and globally. 

A minimum of 32% of each ticket sold is awarded to charities and players have raised an incredible £850 million for good causes, including The Silver Line Helpline.

“I’m so grateful I really can’t put it into words”

Rachel began calling The Silver Line when she was living alone and going through a difficult time. She believes that without the support of Silver Line team members, she wouldn’t be here.
