No matter what your age, being loved and cared for is important to all of us.

No one should have no one at Christmas.  But during Christmas the companionship and support of friends and family seems to mean even more than usual – which is why loneliness feels even harsher.

At Age UK Enfield we believe no one should have no one. Not at Christmas. Not ever.

Yet for 40,000 older people in London loneliness is a daily reality. And we don’t just mean at Christmas.

How you can help

If you want to change the lives of older people in Enfield this Christmas, please call 020 8375 4120 -  to find out how you can make a difference. Or you could donate on line

Talking to no one

In the UK, 1 million older people go a month or more without seeing or speaking to a friend, family member or neighbour.

We need to change that. We need to make sure help is available for all older people who find their lives adversely affected by loneliness or illness or poverty, whatever the time of year.

Here in Enfield we’re working as hard as we can all year round to help older people face the different challenges that growing older brings, and with your help we can work to make sure no one in later life need be alone or isolated.

Whether it’s through our befriending services or lunch clubs, our information and advice around getting the financial support people need to make the most of their later years or just being somewhere to turn when things get too tough to cope with on your own.

Age UK Enfield provides crucial companionship, advice and support to thousands - of people every year.

But we can’t do any of this without your help.

So if you want to change the lives of older people in Enfield this Christmas, please call 020 8375 4120-  to find out how you can make a difference.

You can help to change the lives of local people and make sure no one has no one at Christmas.

Age UK Enfield provides a range of services and your gift will go where the need is greatest.
