information SERVICE DETAILS

When you need friendship and support call us.

We're here to listen, provide friendship and offer support. Having a conversation can have such a positive impact, we can talk about many things that aren’t coronavirus related, for example current interests, hobbies, previous work life – the list is endless!

When you need friendship and support, please call 0800 12 44 222 to have a chat and schedule a weekly call with one of our friendly volunteers.

It's completely FREE to cal and chat.

Acute loneliness has a significant impact on physical and mental health.

Some older people won't want to tell their families how they feel. But they can tell us.

Our Friendship Line is here for anyone who wants to chat or just to have a friendly ear to listen.

Words matter, give us comfort, wrap us in reassurance and help us stay connected.

Every year, thousands of people call Age Scotland, the national charity for older people.

You can call us about absolutely anything. With Age Scotland, you are not alone.

We're here to listen, provide friendship and offer support. Because words matter.

As well as friendship you can also call us for information and advice on:

- Benefits and entitlements
- Local services and opportunities
- Social Care funding and options
- Housing and Staying Warm
- Legal issues such as Power of Attorney

Get in touch on 0800 12 44 222

If there's something we can help with or you're not sure where to turn, contact our team today.

Call us Monday to Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm or email us.
