Help to stop loneliness

Being one of the UK’s leading homecare providers we feel strongly about combatting loneliness in later life, and we are encouraging everyone to support Age UK’s “The Big Chinwag” event.

Being one of the UK’s leading homecare providers we feel strongly about combatting loneliness in later life, and we are encouraging everyone to support Age UK’s “The Big Chinwag” event.

Age UK report that more than a million older people in the UK go for a month or more without seeing or speaking to anyone, and Bluebird Care are encouraging friends and communities to get together for a Big Chinwag event on Friday 19th June to raise funds to help Age UK tackle loneliness in later life.

All you need to do is set aside some time on Friday 19th June and invite people to join you for a chat. You can create any fun event you like, such as a cake sale, a quiz, or a fancy dress theme. Age UK also invite everyone to make a donation to Age UK and they will use the funds raised to help lonely older people across the UK.

For more information about how to take part in ‘The Big Chinwag’ event please see Age UK’s website.
