Age UK Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

Why we need your help

Age UK needs your help to support older people during the coronavirus outbreak.

With the Government’s recommendations for social distancing for people over 70, Age UK’s services have never been more in demand.

We’re working hard to ensure our vital information, advice and befriending services can continue to safely help the older people who are reaching out to us during these deeply worrying times. Calls to our advice line have already increased 30% and we only expect this number to rise.

In communities across the UK, older people are relying on their local Age UK to provide practical support with food supplies and much more.

We’re determined to be there for older people who need our help and especially those who have no one else to turn to, but we desperately need your support.

Your donation could be used to help us to:  

  • Meet the growing demand of calls to our Advice Line - which are already 30% up and expected to rise - so that we can provide expert advice and support to all older people, their carers and families who need our help 
  • Continue to provide our crucial friendship services, through our befriending calls and our 24-hour Helpline, enabling us to provide comfort and reassurance to older people facing long periods of isolation 
  • Provide additional funds to our network of local Age UKs in over 130 communities to help them provide local telephone support and friendship, and practical help with food parcels to ensure that vulnerable older people stay well    

Every pound counts. Thank you for donating today.

  • £10 could enable a local Age UK to deliver services within communities such as a food parcel to an isolated older person  
  • £15 could pay to answer three calls to our advice line from vulnerable older people needing information and support on how to cope during this crisis  
  • £20 could pay for two weekly befriending calls to self-isolated older people who have no one to turn to  

Age UK is a registered charity, registered charity no 1128267. Age UK will be raising funds on behalf of itself and local Age UKs who are also registered charities and The Silver Line Help Line which is also a charity.
