The Silver Line operates the only confidential, free helpline for older people across the UK that’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.

The specially trained Helpline team can:

  • Offer immediate friendship and comfort to lonely and isolated older callers
  • Help with information on all issues faced by older people
  • Refer older callers to other sources of support, such as regular weekly calls with a trained volunteer
  • Signpost callers to appropriate support services they may find helpful in their area.
  • Support older callers who may be suffering from abuse or neglect

The Silver Line Helpline is available to older people aged 55 and over, all across the UK.
