The Silver Line is a helpline and friendship service for people aged 55 and over. The Silver Line Helpline is free to callers. All costs of calls are covered by The Silver Line. They rely entirely on donations from organisations and people who care about the welfare and safety of older people. Silver Line is a confidential helpline.
