Ember Inns help the Silver Line

Ember Inns help the Silver Line

Many older people go for days without talking to anyone, and this time of year can feel especially lonely. Ember Inns are an important part of the community, and that's why Ember Inns are raising money to help their new partner charity The Silver Line provide information, friendship and advice to older people, 24 hours a day, every day.

Find your local Ember

The Silver Line is the only free confidential helpline of its kind. The specially trained helpline staff:

  • offer regular befriending calls
  • link callers to local groups and services
  • protect and support those who are suffering abuse and neglect

The helpline receives about 900 calls a day, and more than half of callers say they have nobody else to speak to. It's all funded by donations and you can help us raise thousands by adding 50p to your bill whenever you eat at an Ember Inn until the end of December.

There's always a warm welcome at your local Ember Inn so let's help The Silver Line provide a friendly voice at the end of the phone.
