Independent Age – are a national charity that help, support and advise older people, as well as offering befriending services. You can call Independent Age‘s free Helpline on 0800 319 6789 if you would like advice on a range of issues from care and support, money and benefits, and health and mobility; if you would like to order one of their guides or leaflets, or if you would like to discuss receiving regular friendship calls. There’s also a great online quiz on their website you can take, to test to see if you are ‘Scam-wise’, posing examples of fake and genuine messages you might receive to see if you can tell the difference. Take a look at the full list of free advice guides and fact sheets they have available by clicking on the picture below, many of which we have been glad to take along on our Rural Coffee Caravan village visits.
Our local, Suffolk, Independent Age representative is Simon Sinclair who can be contacted via email.
