Hourglass Covid 19 response

COVID-19 Response: 

We are deeply concerned about the significantly increased risk of abuse and neglect to the nation's older population, as widespread lockdown and self-isolation takes effect amid the UK's efforts to tackle the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have any concerns about yourself or an older person, please call our helpline on 0808 808 8141 - we are here to help you 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday. Outside these hours you can leave a message or fill out our contact form
