The Silver Line

The Silver Line is the UK’s only free, confidential, 24-hour helpline for vulnerable and isolated
older people, open every single day and night of the year and offering information, friendship,
advice or a chat whenever needed.   Launched by Dame Esther Rantzen in November 2013, in
less than 6 years we have received more than 2.5 million calls from older people all over the UK,
more than half having no-one else at all to turn to, some simply calling to say “goodnight”.
“The Silver Line lets me escape the silence.  I’m disabled and stuck in four walls which feel like
they are closing in.  It’s so comforting to know that I can pick up the phone at anytime and speak
to someone who truly cares about me”  – Maggie, Silver Line caller.   


 The helpline number is: 0800 4 70 80 90.


Just £5 will pay for any older person to call The Silver Line day or night. 15% of the sale price
(less VAT) of all of these products will be donated to The Silver Line for our vital work. Thank you
for your support.
