We’re pleased to announce that we are a recipient of  Independent Age’s Cost-of-living Grants Fund! This support will allow us to continue helping older people during these difficult times, ensuring they get the advice and help they need. Find out more. We are one of 27 organisations that have received a grant from Independent Age. This grant is from £1 million fund they set up to give to charities that work  directly with older people to help those struggling with the cost of living. This funding will help us extend our support to meet the demand from older people over the coming months.

Rising Costs Force Older People to Drain Savings

New research commissioned by the charity Independent Age indicates that one in four older people (24%) had to rely on savings last winter to help cover daily living costs, such as increased heating bills and soaring supermarket prices. The cost-of-living crisis is adversely affecting many older people, forcing some into dangerous cost-cutting measures and debt as they don’t have enough to cover the essentials.
Despite available support for the cost of living, many remain unaware of the financial support they could be entitled to from their utility companies or local authority.
