The Silver Line

The Silver Line is the first and only 24 hour, free and confidential telephone helpline for lonely and isolated older people in the UK. Esther Rantzen’s “ChildLine for older people” is a simple concept where you can find out about services in your area, talk in confidence, get some friendly advice or quite simply have a chat. And for people who appreciate a weekly call from the same person there are now more than 1500 volunteer Silver Line Friends who share our belief that a simple connection with another human being, through a telephone friendship, can be life-changing.
