So, What Is Silver Line? And Who Can Use it?

The Silver Line is a confidential, free helpline for older people across the UK open every day and night of the year. Specially trained helpline staff:

• Offer information, friendship and advice

• Link callers to local groups and services

• Offer regular befriending calls

• Protect and support those who are suffering abuse and neglect


About the Silver Line Helpline
0800 4 70 80 90
More than half of all 75 year olds in the UK live alone and one in ten suffers “intense” loneliness but is reluctant to ask for help. In a poll conducted to mark the national launch of The Silver Line in November 2013, 9 out of 10 older people told researchers that “a chat on the phone” is the most helpful solution when they feel lonely but 1 in 4 older people say they never or seldom have someone to chat to on the phone.

Who is it for?
The Silver Line is a helpline for older people – the Silver Generation. There are no strict age limits but most people spoken to are over 65. 

Are All Calls Free?
The Silver Line Helpline is free to callers. Individuals can ring the service independently or can be referred by staff, family, friends or carers. It relies on charitable donations from organisations and individuals who care about the welfare and safety of older people to fund this vital new service.

Are all calls confidential?
The Silver Line is a confidential helpline. Callers are free to express their feelings and describe their lives honestly, and can trust us to respect their privacy.
In cases of abuse or neglect, with the callers’ permission, we will involve specialist safeguarding organisations such as Action on Elder Abuse or Social Services.

Silver Line Friends and Silver Circles
If callers would like to be put in touch with Silver Line Friends, they can receive a regular weekly friendship call or email. Or they may like to join a Silver Circle and take part in a regular group call on subjects that interest them.

Silver Line Friends are volunteers who have contacted The Silver Line because they enjoy talking to older people. They are vetted and trained, and work in pairs for safeguarding and support.

Silver Line Forums
For those who want to connect online with others who have similar experiences, there are forums on a wide range of subjects that you can contribute to.
For more information on the service and how Central Bedfordshire Council will be working with The Silver Line please contact Victoria Clout – victoria.clout@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk

SUMMER HOLIDAYS WITH ROBIN HOOD IN RUSHMERE FOREST

Robin Hood will be swapping Sherwood Forest for Rushmere Woods as The Storyteller Theatre Company help you get the summer holidays off to a fantastic start with an entrancing and highly entertaining piece of specialist children's theatre at 1pm and 3pm on Friday 25th July. This is an event perfect for the whole family!

In one of the Wood's beautiful glades, under the natural cover of the trees, the company's three professional actors will transform the space into a magical, intimate theatre, and with the use of soft toys and puppets, will recreate one of England's most well‐known and loved classical stories.

As a 'Theatre in Education' company, The Storyteller Theatre Company has performed in schools and nurseries, and their highly visual style is guaranteed to capture even the youngest of minds. The nursery manager at one of their recent performances commented after their show, "The children, staff and parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I don't think we have ever seen the pre‐school children sit on the same spot for that amount of time!"

The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes, and includes the opportunity for the children to interact with the actors and characters. Children are invited to bring their own favourite stuffed toy...who knows, one of the toys may be given their own starring role in the play!

Food and refreshments will be available in the Tree Top Cafe, and there is plenty of opportunity for you to enjoy your own picnic whilst the kids enjoy the open space in the meadow, either before or after the performance.

There will be two performances on the day, one at 1pm and one at 3pm. Tickets* will be available on the day at a cost of just £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for children (please note that ticket sales will be cash only). Under 2s can watch for free! You will also receive a programme, free of charge, which will contain some fun activities for the children to do whilst in the woods.

Live theatre, beautiful surroundings, and the perfect way to stimulate your children. What better way to start the summer holidays?

For more information, visit http://jmscreativetheatre.co.uk/public‐performances.html or to stay in touch, 'Like' their Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/thestorytellertheatrecompany

*There is a £2 parking fee payable to the venue on exit.
