Did you know Edinburgh is the loneliest city 
in the UK for older people?  

11,000 over 60s in Edinburgh are lonely, 
and 2 in 5 of these have the TV 
as their main form of company.

Vintage Vibes tackles social isolation and loneliness 
in Edinburgh long-term by creating true friendships.
We put together local volunteers and VIPs (over 60s) with 
shared interests and characteristics in order that 
they become real friends
We have volunteers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, and we even
encourage babies and dogs to come along for the volunteering!
Annie and Ali
We believe friendship is based on shared passions, not age, and 
we supported over 100 friendships to be made in our first year!
Vintage Vibes doesn't only make a huge difference when our volunteers 
and VIPs are meeting, but also to the mental health, confidence and
 of our VIPs outwith seeing their new friend.

9/10 of VIPs asked said they found they felt 
more comfortable spending time alone, 
because they knew they had a visit from their
Vintage Vibes friend to look forward to.


Your support will help us change the lives
of even more over 60s in Edinburgh 
for the long-term.

Your support can give more lonely 
over 60s a much-needed friend.  

Your support can 
be the difference. 

Thank you for considering Vintage Vibes!
