With the current measures in place, it's important to continue supporting each other and those who need us most. Older people are among those who have been advised to stay at home and may be feeling uncertain.


So, how can we support older relatives, friends and neighbours in the community?

With special thanks to Becky Wass for allowing us to use her intuitive #viralkindness campaign, we have designed some support cards that you can use to help older people.

Simply download them by clicking the button below, print them, fill them out and post them through your relatives, friends and neighbours doors.

There are others ways you can help if you are also staying at home, we've listed these below. 

Write to them 

A traditional form of keeping in touch, still loved dearly by the older generation. You could even get crafty and make some homemade cards (great to get the kids involved) or send a small gift to keep spirits high.

Book/Film share  

Share some books you've read or films you've watched that you really enjoyed. 

You could also share befriending helplines such as Age UK and The Silver Line. Both their numbers are below.

Age UK – 0800 169 65 65                           
The Silver Line – 0800 470 80 90
