Service summary

What do Contact the Elderly groups do? One Sunday afternoon a month, throughout the country, Contact the Elderly groups meet for tea and companionship. These groups are a lifeline 

Further information

By volunteering with Contact the Elderly you can find enjoyment and fulfilment in helping to make a real difference to the lives of older people who are otherwise isolated from family and friends.

Once a month, normally on a Sunday afternoon, each older guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver, and taken to a volunteer host’s home, where they join a small group for tea, talk and companionship.  The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the charity’s drivers and older guests remain the same.
