Check if you qualify for extra support

The Independent Age guide to benefits for older people

With the cost of living rising, it's worth checking whether you qualify for extra support. A lot of people miss out on money they are due. To make sure you're not one of them, take a look at all the advice and resources on the Independent Age website.

Social Men 

We know many men don't want to just sit around feeling bored and lonely! Sid Valley Help is running the Social Men project to help men who want to reconnect to activities in the local community.  It's time to get out and do something - time to join a social or sports club, or start voluntary work. Download our Social Men leaflet which has a list of selected clubs and groups - all of whom welcome new members.
