.. we care about older people.  According to Age UK, more than a million older people in the UK say they haven’t spoken to a friend, neighbour or family member for over a month.   Older people, not just at Christmas but throughout the year, are important to ZCT and to you throughout the year, and much of our grant making reflects this.

Our key partnership to support older people is with Age UK.

Since 2005, Age UK has been a key partner through our Social Transformation programme, funding the original pilot of a Call in Time - a telephone befriending service matching employee volunteers with older people who are lonely or isolated.  

Call in Time
has now been rolled out to 18 other companies with the entire programme now supporting 692 older people across the UK.
