Silver Sunday is a powerful vehicle to draw attention to the problem of loneliness amongst older people. It began locally but is now a National day where people of all generations can come together by hosting fun and free activities for older people. It is a day where older people can meet new people, visit new places, try new activities and connect with their local communities and the generations around them.
