What will I be doing?

  • You will be standing in the tube station representing The Silver Line as a part of a bucket-collecting team raising money.
  • Be the warm and welcoming face of The Silver Line during our bucket collection campaign.
  • This will involve standing, being friendly and encouraging donations into our collection buckets.

What impact will this have?

  • Since launching in 2013, we have received more than 2,5 million calls, some simply to say 'Goodnight'.
  • The Silver Line is the UK 's only free, 24 hour, confidential helpline, specifically for vulnerable and isolated older people, open every day and night of the year, offering information, friendship, or a chat whenever needed.
  • We also offer telephone friendship where we match volunteers with older people based on their interests, facilitated group calls, and help to connect people with local services in their area.
