Dame Esther Rantzen – Erosh Patron

Esther 4 Cropped

TV presenter and campaigner Esther Rantzen became our Patron in 2013.

“I am delighted to pledge my support to erosh by becoming its patron. The work that the organisation carries out with the support of its members is incredibly vital to ensure that the housing and support needs of older people are met.”

Esther is well-known for her passion for older people’s issues and she is committed to ensuring issues affecting older people are at the forefront of the Government’s agenda. Esther launched her charity the Silver Line in 2013, a helpline for older people, which aims to reduce isolation and offer companionship.

We would like to thank our partner organisations for their vital support that enables us to deliver the valuable resources and practical advice to our members, which ultimately ensures we achieve our objectives.
