Other agencies that may be able to help you
In some cases we at AFTAID work together with other charitable organisations to provide the maximum help available. We also get called in by charities that are not able to address a particular need where we can.
Below are brief details of some organisations who may also help older people which our own services do not cover. Please use the live links on each logo to view the specific websites.
Forces Help has been serving the Armed Forces and their families for well
over a 100 years and our work is as vital today as it has ever been.
Increasingly, evidence shows that loneliness and the associated social isolation of older people plays a pivotal role, affecting both their physical and mental health.
the Elderly is a national charity that organises monthly Sunday afternoon
tea parties for people over 75 who live alone with little or no support
from family and friends.
These Sunday afternoon tea parties are a lifeline of friendship bringing older people and volunteers together for an afternoon of stories, laughter and conversation. Find out more at their website.
The TV and Radio Charity is the main UK charity for those needing assistance
with a TV or Radio. They aim to prevent feelings of isolation and loneliness
by ensuring that those with issues associated with age, illness or disability
who find it difficult to leave their homes, can benefit from the comfort
and entertainment that a radio or TV can bring.
You will find lots of information on their website.
AFTAID welcome all contributions toward helping relieve the distress to older people caused by being poor. If you can organise a fundraising event, no matter the size, we will be happy to offer support where we can.
