Loneliness is a massive issue for people in the UK, particularly later in life. Half of all people aged 75 and over live alone, and 1 in 10 people aged 65 or over say they are always or often feel lonely – that’s just over a million people.

Shockingly, half of all older people consider the television their main form of company.

Amethyst Network of Friends is a community, in place to eradicate loneliness. We have a team of volunteers who visit those who are lonely, often just for a chat and in addition we hold a range of regular social events where people can engage and interact and make new friends.

If you or someone you know is suffering from loneliness, email our care support team now.
