The No One Should Have No One Campaign aims to highlight the issue of loneliness in later life. It echoes similar TV anti-loneliness campaigns, including “ 1 Million Minutes” and BBC’s ‘A Life Less Lonely # Take 10 minutes – “take time as often as you can to have a chat and connect with someone you know that may otherwise not speak to anyone during their day.”


Across the UK, more than a million older


people say they can go for over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member. A recent Age UK survey demonstrated that 90% of 1,000 GP practices found that some patients made appointments because they were lonely. In response to last year’s Age UK ‘No One Should Have No One’ campaign, people in the UK volunteered to fill 1.9 million hours of silence, donating time to make phone calls to those in need. There was also a 245% increase in self-referrals, with lonely individuals requesting to sign up to the telephone befriending and other services offered by Age UK.

16 NOVEMBER 2017 ISSUE 420 PAGE 46 Many people can find loneliness a strange


concept, especially when they realise they have not spoken to anyone for days or weeks. A visit to the shop or post office and talking to staff can be the first time they have heard the sound of their own voice for some time. One Age UK member commented, “The thing is you’ve never been an old person before. You’ve no idea really of how it is going to be. You become scared of becoming a ‘non-person’, aware that life is going on around you.” Another said, “I live alone and don’t get a lot of company, often feel ignored, invisible and cut off from society”. The Age UK West Cumbria ‘Community


Connections’ project provides vital


companionship through a befriending telephone call or home visit and encourages isolated older people to attend clubs and groups, with the aim of helping them to stay connected with their community. Good company, with social activities, people meeting together, enjoying and sharing. In Cockermouth over the next


few


months, we have extra events, days out, parties, trips, treats and even a pantomime older


for volunteers


people, and


staff to take part in at 93 Main Street.


Some people have no one to say good morning to, no one to say ‘bless you’ when they sneeze, no one to take tea with, no one at the end of a phone, no one to share a laugh or a problem with, no one to make one day different from the rest – and this is something we want to challenge. We believe that No One Should Have No One, and with your help we can support more lonely older people.
