Why we need your help

The sight of groups of older people sitting in a communal lounge staring lifelessly at a TV screen is heart breaking. We work tirelessly to enrich the lives of older people, but we can't do it without you. 

What can you do?

We challenge you to do something amazing. Raise money for Alive and help support some of the UK's most vulnerable older people. 

With your support, we can re-connect with older people living in care. We can unlock memories, spark creativity, conversation and learning, to ultimately transform the way older people are cared for in our society.


Challenge events 

Whether it's climbing the highest peaks or trekking across spectacular landscapes, taking part in a challenge event for Alive will make a real difference to the lives of older people.
