NEVER FEEL ALONE
Helping to reconnect the older generation.
A NORTHERN QUOTA CAMPAIGN
People can find themselves alone in the blink of an eye if they sadly lose a husband or wife or become disconnected from their family and friends as they become older. It's important that nobody is left feeling as though they have no one to turn to when times get tough - so we have formed this campaign to ensure that our older generation
never feel alone.
1 in 3 older people are affected by loneliness.
Half of all older people in the UK (that’s 5 million) consider TV to be their main form of company.
A shocking 370,000 over 75s spend ‘zero hours’ with other people on a typical day.
