Contact the Elderly
Contact the Elderly is a national charity which tackles the acute loneliness of isolated older people, over the age of 75, who lives alone with limited support from family, friends and statutory services.
Each month on a Sunday afternoon, our volunteer drivers use their cars to take one or two older people to afternoon tea in a volunteer host’s home, where a small group enjoys warm hospitality and friendship. At the end of the afternoon, the volunteers see our guests safely home again. Over the months and years, ongoing support and friendships grow between older guests and volunteers.
