Independent Age - advice and befriending for older people

At Independent Age, we want to make the UK a better place to grow older. We understand the issues faced in later life, we campaign for change, and we provide support people can rely on – from award-winning information guides to a network of volunteers helping us to beat loneliness and isolation across the UK.


Regular calls and visits

We believe in the power of a good chat. Our free Friendship Services give older people the chance to receive a regular call or visit from one of our wonderful volunteers and, over time, form a genuine, trusting bond. A regular telephone call or visit from an Independent Age volunteer can make all the difference – our volunteers are people who enjoy listening, talking and getting to know people.



If you need advice or would like to find out more about our services, call us on 0800 319 6789, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-6.30pm, and Saturday, 9am-1pm, or email your query to
